End your ‘unholy alliance with BJP’, go back to your people: Chidambaram tells Mehbooba

In a series of tweets, former Finance Minister P Chidambaram launched a scathing attack on JK chief minister Mehbooba Mufti and asked her to end the ‘unholy’ alliance with the BJP, which has been the ‘gravest provocation’ to the people of the valley.

He also said that Mehbooba should resign, return to the policy of her father, return to her people.

The former Home and Finance Minister claimed the “muscular and militaristic” approach of the central government has driven the state towards the present “catastrophic” situation.

Chidambaram said he shared the Jammu and Kashmir chief minister’s concern that statesmanship required to get the state out of the vicious cycle of killings but it was sad that she does not see that her coalition government is the core of the problem.

Mehbooba yesterday had urged the national leadership to show the element of compassion and display the statesmanship to get Jammu and Kashmir out of this “vicious cycle of killings”.

A tourist from Chennai died yesterday after he was hit on the head by a stone during a protest on the outskirts of Srinagar. Five Hizbul Mujahideen militants, including an assistant professor of the Kashmir University, were killed in a gunfight in the Valley on Sunday. Five civilians were killed after forces fired into the protesters near the site of the gunfight.
