Fresh Divisive Policies Being Adopted, BJP Making People Powerless: Mehbooba Mufti

New Delhi is promoting a new strategy to divide the people of Jammu and Kashmir and make them more powerless. These things were said at a meeting of the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) held at the residence of party president Mehbooba Mufti.

Presiding over the meeting, Mehbooba Mufti said that divisive policies are being adopted afresh. He said that the only weapon of BJP is to pit people against each other, religion, sect and ethnicity. Such policies are being adopted to hide their failure. There is only one plan behind doing this: divide people and make them powerless. He appealed to the people to stand up to thwart such plans.

She said that initially, some people were caught in the false narrative of empowered Jammu. Were understand that whatever the Government of India has been doing since August 5, 2019, is for it. But now, it is clear and accepted that the Jammu region is paying a heavy price for the BJP’s nefarious antics.

Party’s chief spokesperson Suhail Bukhari said that a strategy had been prepared by the party to fight against this strategy of BJP. Will not allow the divisive policy to succeed. PDP will raise its voice for the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. Bukhari also expressed anger over the repressive policy being adopted on the students outside the state and the action taken against them and assured that all possible help would be provided to them apart from legal aid. He also expressed concern over the existing security arrangements in the Valley.
