Mehbooba slams Gen Rawat’s remarks on curbs in IIOJK

Srinagar, October 24 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) President, Mehbooba Mufti, reacting to the remarks by General Bipin Rawat, said that “repression” was the India’s only method to deal with situation in the territory.

Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat on Saturday warned that restrictions imposed in Kashmir after revocation of Article 370 could return given risk of militant strikes.

“Even after turning Kashmir into an open air prison, [General] Bipin Rawat’s statement comes as no surprise because repression is only method of the Indian government to deal with the situation in J&K. It also contradicts their official narrative that all is well here,” she said on Twitter.

The PDP chief wondered what more measures were left to be implemented after stringent, harsh & repressive measures like mass arrests, suspension of internet at will, and setting up new security bunkers.
