Srinagar: The Bhartiya Janta Party has called for the arrest of PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti for ‘instigating’ people to defy the two day Highway ban. The BJP added that she should be arrested for trying to create a ‘law and order situation.’
“FIR should been registered against former CM Mehbooba Mufti for statements to instigate the public to defy vehicular ban on highway on Wednesdays and Sundays,” the chief spokesperson of J&K Bharatiya Janata Party, Sunil Sethi, told reporters.
“We demand the arrest of Mehbooba Mufti for instigating public to break law,” he added. The BJP leader said Mufti wants to create “chaos for pity political gains”.
He said “perhaps” that is what Mufti desires as she may get more votes by instigating public. Sethi noted that politics in the state has gone to the “lowest ebb” when a former chief minister has no regard for law.
Meanwhile, reacting over BJP’s statement Mehbooba said that such threats won’t scare her and BJP shouldn’t foregt that she is not made up of wood ‘that burns easily’.
BJP wants me arrested for instigating Kashmiris to defy a callous ban that prohibits them from using their own roads. But such tactics & threats won’t scare me. They forget I am not made of a wood that burns easily. https://t.co/F6N6sGaH2b
