Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief and former chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti said that Jammu and Kashmir has been turned into a laboratory and that the political process has been destroyed here.

Addressing a news conference, Mehbooba, said that the initative taken by Atal Bihari Vajpayee is missing at present.

“The people of JK are suffering as the bulldozers bulldozed the constitution and democracy,” she said, adding that the affairs of JK are being run through remote control. “Everything in Jammu and Kashmir is being put on sale and in such a situation we don’t see elections to be held soon here,” she added.

Mehbooba said that the mainstream political parties are being bulldozed. “We are not being allowed to go anywhere. The leaders are being deprived of their security,” PDP chief said, adding that the political process has been destroyed completely.

Reacting to the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi’s yesterday’s speech at Jammu, where he had said that the youth in JK will not face what their fathers and grandfathers witnessed, Mehbooba said, “Yes, PM is right in saying that youth here wouldn’t see what their grandfathers and fathers have witnessed as they will be booked under UAPA, harassed by NIA and other agencies, they will be jailed, they will be shifted to Tihar jail, the employment meant for them will be given to people from non-locals, their land will be given to others, contracts for sand, marvel and others has been given to non-locals.”

She said that the PM is talking about youth, but “I fail to understand who he was referring to, those who are being booked under UAPA, those whose land is being snatched?”

The former chief minister also said that the people here have been pushed to reel under darkness even in the holy month of Ramadan.

“The government left no stone unturned to push JK towards darkness. The present power scenario is ample proof,” she said.
