Had formed govt with BJP on some conditions, says Mehbooba
Srinagar: Former chief minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Monday while apologizing for her ‘toffee’ remarks said that she was not ready to join hands with BJP to form the government.
“I had put some conditions for government formation before BJP but these politicians creating trouble inside PDP went to Nagpur and told them to bypass me thus compromising my position,” she said, adding that her condition included giving back power projects.
Mehbooba made these remarks while addressing a rally in Bijbehara on the third death anniversary of his father, Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.
Mehbooba in her address also apologized for her ‘toffee’ remarks that had generated anger among the people.
“If my comments, as a mother, have agonized mothers, sisters and brothers, I apologise. I am being criticised for what I said, but I said this as a mother. Mothers get angry when her kids don’t listen to her,” Mehbooba Mufti said.
She told the rally that people of Kokernag, Kulgam would remember that how her party saved them from bonded labour. She took a dig at Indian PM Narendra Modi saying he has wasted his mandate in India as well in Kashmir.
