GoI interested in Kashmir, not its people: Mehbooba Mufti
Srinagar: Former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said that Government of India has consistent approach towards Kashmir to ‘suffocate’ and ‘deprive them of basic rights’.
Mehbooba said that the GoI is interested with Kashmir only and not in its people.
“GoI’s current approach towards Kashmir has been consistent only when it comes to repression. Suffocate Kashmiris, throw them in jails, deprive them of basic rights & make them suffer. They only want Kashmir. Don’t give two hoots about what happens to its people (sic),” Mehbooba said.
The sharp comments from PDP chief comes a day after the government announced that civilian traffic will be barred from Highway from Udhampur in Jammu till Baramulla in north Kashmir for two days every week to facilitate movement of forces for the upcoming parliamentary election.
