Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee has condemned the statement of former Chief Minister of JK Mehbooba Mufti on the Tricolour, saying it is “unacceptable and has hurt the sentiments of people”.
”Such statements are intolerable and unacceptable in any society,” news agency PTI quoted JKPCC chief spokesperson Ravinder Sharma as having said.
Reacting to her statement, Sharma said it was highly provocative and irresponsible and has hurt sentiments of people.
He said that such statements will defeat the democratic and constitutional struggle for achieving any just right.
”She should desist from such outrageous utterances, the JKPCC spokesperson said.
In her first media interaction after her release from 14-month detention, the PDP president said she would hold the Tricolour only when the separate flag of the erstwhile state is restored.
”As far as I am concerned, I have no interest in elections. Till the time the Constitution under which I used to contest elections is returned to us, Mehbooba Mufti has got nothing to do with elections, let me tell you that,” Mehbooba said.
