ED’s summon to Farooq Abdullah displays GoI’s nervousness about ‘united fight’ of JK mainstream parties: Mehbooba Mufti

Srinagar: The former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief, Mehbooba Mufti on Monday said that Enforcement Department’s sudden summon to Dr Farooq Abdullah displays Government of India’s nervousness about mainstream parties in JK fighting as one unit.

Mehbooba in her tweet said that action reeks of political vendetta and won’t blunt their collective resolve to fight for the rights.

“ED’s sudden summon to Farooq sahib displays the extent of GOIs nervousness about mainstream parties in J&K fighting as one unit. Also reeks of political vendetta & wont in the least blunt our collective resolve to fight for our rights,” Mehbooba tweeted.

Meanwhile, in a statement, National Conference spokesperson said that BJP after failing to politically fight party president Dr Farooq Abdullah, has resorted to employing its agencies for the task

“The ED summon to Dr Farooq Abdullah is clearly the result of the unity that Dr Sahib has been able to forge among mainstream political parties in JK. This is the price one faces when opposed to BJP’s ideology and divisive politics. Recent history is a witness to how BJP has been employing coercive and intimidate measures through various departments to target opposition leaders across the country. The recent ED summon to Dr Farooq Abdullah is a case in point.”

The statement further added, “the timing of the recent summon is very clear. His previous summons were just before Aug 5 last year and today’s summon comes within days of forming the People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration of which Dr Farooq Abdullah has taken a lead.”

“Dr Farooq Abdullah continues to maintain his innocence and will cooperate with the authorities in what is nothing but a witch hunt,” the statement said.
