Prevailing conditions suffocating people in Kashmir: Mehbooba

Srinagar, November 09 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President, Mehbooba Mufti launched a scathing attack at Narednra Modi led Indian government over what she termed “its failure to improve the ground situation” in Kashmir.

Mufti was speaking on the joining of the former NC lawmaker, Abdul Majeed Mir to PDP. “It isn’t easy to join PDP these days. It is synonymous with touching a live wire.”

While addressing the people, she said that the prevailing conditions have suffocated people to the extent that it had become difficult to even breathe in the current environment.

“We had hoped with Indian Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit, things might ease a bit, but the restrictions became more stringent after his visit,” Mufti said.

Questioning Narednra Modi led Indian government over its decision of sending additional security forces, Mufti said, “Sending additional CRPF and security into our marriage halls and hospitals is not the answer. They are forcing these CRPF men even into our nostrils,” Mufti warned adding that it will not achieve anything.

She said that there was hope that restrictions would be eased with the visit of the Home Minister. “But during his visit, hundreds of youth were sent to Agra and other jails. During the India Pakistan cricket match, cases were slapped against our youths studying at Agra and elsewhere.”

She asked Narednra Modi led Indian government to identify the root cause behind why Kashmiris are cheering for Pakistan instead of filing cases against them.
