Srinagar: PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday said that if standing up for the rights of people makes her a separatist, then it is a badge she will wear with honour.
She was responding to the statement of Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitely who said that the statements of the mainstream politicians of the valley create a separatist psyche and is not acceptable to new India.
Unacceptable is a new India where those who kill and lynch in the name of religion are feted and garlanded. If standing up for my people makes me a separatist and anti national then its a badge I will wear with honour. https://t.co/7KJAHfrOe5
