Srinagar: Days after terming ‘any hand’ of New Delhi behind her party’s disgruntlement as a serious matter, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti Friday warned the NDA-government that any attempt of breaking PDP will give birth to more Salahuddins and Yasin Maliks in Kashmir.
Mufti who earlier cracked whip on rebels in her partyfold was speaking at Naqeshbandh Sahab shrine where she turned up with her party members early today to pay her obeisance to 1931 martyrs.
“If Delhi, tries to dismiss the voting rights of people like 1987, if it tries to create divisions & interfere like that then I think just like a Salahuddin and a Yasin Malik were born in 1987…if it tries to break PDP like that then outcomes will be dangerous,” Mufti said.
Opposition leader, Omar Abdullah while reacting to Mufti’s remarks, tweeted: “Let me put this out here for all to remember NOT ONE NEW MILITANT WILL BE CREATED WITH THE BREAK UP OF THE PDP. People will not mourn the demise of a party created in Delhi only to divide the votes of Kashmiris.”
State Congress President Ghulam Ahmad Mir derided Mufti’s remarks saying PDP president and her party are equally responsible for the political mess in the state and that PDP should have talk like this in 2014, when it entered into an alliance with BJP.
