Hours after Peoples’ Democratic Party chief Mehooba Mufti spoke at her first press conference since being released from 14 months of detention, the BJP on Friday accused her of making “seditious remarks”. “We will raise the national flag only once our state flag is back. The national flag is here only because of this (the Jammu and Kashmir) flag and constitution. We are linked to the rest of the country because of this flag,” Ms Mufti, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister, said on Friday, prompting criticism from the BJP and the Congress. Hitting out at the PDP president over the comments, J&K BJP president Ravinder Raina told reporters: “I request Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to take note of (the) seditious remarks of Mehbooba Mufti, book her for the seditious act and put her behind bars”.
