Mehbooba govt was the worst ever: BJP leader
Jammu: Former Jammu and Kashmir minister and senior BJP leader Choudhary Lal Singh today said the previous Mehbooba Mufti government was the “worst ever” dispensation in the state and more damage would have been caused had his party not pulled out of it.
He said the “unilateral ceasefire” announced in view of the holy month of Ramzan was the “biggest mistake” as it had allowed militantsto regroup and had dented the morale of security forces.
It’s not good to impose governor’s rule in a democratic set up. But when the situation is deteriorating by the day, it’s the only option left. This (PDP-BJP) government was the worst the state has ever seen, Singh told reporters.
Hailing BJP president Amit Shah for taking the right albeit late decision , he said, The people were saved from the opportunistic rulers who were working on communal lines.”
He accused Mehbooba Mufti of being “pro-separatist” and said she started her political career by shedding tears, a reference to her visits to meet families of slain soldiers.
They (PDP leaders) are their (separatist) sponges. Her life started with their support, he alleged.
I am senior to her in politics and I can say with authority that she will never become chief minister again,” he said.
Singh said Mehbooba Mufti ruined everything because of her inefficiency and had hurt the “soul of her father Mufti Sayeed”.
I met her to demand a CBI probe into the Kathua incident, but she declined it in a bid to malign the people of Jammu, he alleged.
