IIOJK in focus

Modi-led government’s normalcy claim fake: PDP

Srinagar, Oct 07 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Peoples Democratic Party President, Mehbooba Mufti, has said that the recent spate of civilian killings in Kashmir lays in tatters Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government’s  “fake narrative of normalcy” in the occupied territory.

PDP president Mehbooba Mufti in a tweet said the recent spate of civilian killings in Kashmir lays in tatters the Centre’s “fake narrative of normalcy” in the Valley.

A well known chemist, Makhan Lal Bindroo was killed by indentified gunmen at his pharmacy in high security Iqbal Park in Srinagar, while two other people were killed in Bandipora.

“An utterly desensitised government that has devalued human lives and pushed Jammu and Kashmir into further peril and chaos by its ruthless policies of collective punishment in the garb of security,” she tweeted.

Separately, talking to reporters in Srinagar, Mehbooba Mufti said that the spate of civilian killings in IIOJK reflected the utter failure of what she termed “double-engine Modi government”. “I am tired of issuing condemnations to civilian killings now. Every day there is a killing of civilians. Today, two teachers were killed,” she said.

She said now people will face the more stringent security measures as the Modi government will try to hide its failures by resorting to “tough security measures in Srinagar and elsewhere.”

She said that it was unfortunate to see civilian killings despite slew of anti-people measures that includes NIA (National Investigation Agency) and ED (Enforcement Directorate) raids on politicians and businessmen, terminating government employees, harassing journalists and what not. “Now there will be TV debates on Godi Media where anchors will try to trigger Hindu-Muslim fissures,” she said.
