'BJP has turned Gandhi's country into Godse's country - Mehbooba Mufti'

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said that the present central government has turned Gandhi's country into Godse's country. Minorities are being persecuted in every state including Jammu and Kashmir. The voice of the people of Kashmir has been suppressed.

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti alleged in a press conference held at the Indian Women's Press Corp that Kashmir has become a prison where people are not allowed to express their opinion. In August 2019, the central government abolished the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Constitution and bifurcated the state into two union territories. The central government is calling the youth of Kashmir a tukde-tukde gang. The voice of the media has been suppressed.

On the question of alliance with BJP, Mehbooba Mufti said that the alliance with BJP was done by her father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed. Along with this there was also a condition to retain Article 370. But BJP removed 370. After them the PDP split. Jammu and Kashmir has been made a laboratory for implementing the new law.

On the question of holding elections in the state, he said that delimitation is being done in Jammu and Kashmir while in other states it is to be done by 2026. It is clear that on the pretext of delimitation, the central government is trying to divide Kashmir for its political gains.
