Srinagar: Stating that the Hyderpora like incident will not let the situation improve in the valley, PDP chief Mehboba Mufti said that such incidents further widen the void and gap between New Delhi and JK.
The PDP chief visited north Kashmir’s Kupwara district to check party pulse in the district.
Talking to reporters on the sidelines of her visit Mehbooba said that all that happened in Hyderpora is wrong and it’s the height of injustice for which the lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir must take responsibility since he is heading the administration of the region.
“Apart from being the UT administration head, the Lieutenant Governor is the New Delhi’s man appointed here in the region. He is the one responsible for the lives of people and everything belonging to them,” the PDP chief said.
Mehbooba said that Amir’s father has been rewarded for killing militants in the past and they are yet to get his body and such acts will further disturb the situation and widen the gap between the Jammu and Kashmir and New Delhi further.
“As long as such incidents (Hyderpora civilian killings ) continue to surface, the situation will not get to normal,” she said and urged the LG to return the body of third slain Amir Ahmed of Banihal, Jammu to his family for last rites.
In response to a query related to the withdrawal of farmers’ bills, she said that unlike the states of Uttar Pardesh and Gujarat, JK doesn’t have parliament seats in large numbers as it has only five including Ladakh.
“It took 70 years for BJP to come to absolute power and take a decision like August 05, 2019, and similarity it may take 70 more days or months to get the decision reversed since nothing is impossible in this world”, she said.
“We will continue to strive hard for the restoration of Article 370 and 35A under the Indian constitution which has already guaranteed it to the people of Jammu and Kashmir,” she said.
