Mehbooba Mufti denies Amit Shah’s allegations of discrimination against Jammu and Ladakh

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday emphatically denied that she discriminated against Jammu and Ladakh regions and wondered why none of the BJP ministers spoke about it till now if it was true.

“Many false charges levelled against us by our former allies. Our commitment to the Agenda of Alliance, co-authored by Ram Madhav and endorsed by senior leaders like (Union Home minister) Rajnath (Singh) ji never wavered. It is sad to see them disown their own initiative and label it a soft approach,” said Ms. Mufti, who released six-part tweets.

In a string of tweets, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief said that whatever happened during the time of the PDP-BJP rule in the state was in accordance with the Agenda of Alliance (AoA) the two parties had drawn up.

The tweets came just a day after Mr. Shah blew the poll bugle in Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday from Jammu and accused Ms. Mufti of being soft on separatists and discriminatory to the Jammu and Ladakh regions.

Mehbooba Mufti said that not handing over the Rasana rape and murder case to the CBI, getting the “pro-rapist Ministers” removed from the cabinet and issuing orders not to harass the Gujjar and Bakarwal community in the guise of anti-encroachment drives were her duty as Chief Minister.

In a bid corner the BJP, she said the status quo on Article 370, dialogue with Pakistan and Hurriyat were a part of Agenda of Alliance. “Encouraging dialogue, withdrawing cases against stonepelters and the unilateral ceasefire were much needed measures to restore confidence on the ground. This was recognized and endorsed by BJP,” she said.
