Srinagar: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP on Monday sought apology from PDP chief and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on her remark over alleged harassment to families of militants in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
BJP senior leader and former deputy chief minister Kavinder Gupta while seeking an apology from Mehbooba Mufti over her remark against the alleged harassment of the families of militants said that glorifying militants ahead of elections is unbecoming of Mufti who has held the position of chief minister and also the head of the Unified Headquarters (UHQ).
“Today she is supporting militants but while in power she used to talk against stone pelting youth and her remark ‘had they gone to buy toffee and milk’ is still a point of debate among the people in Kashmir,” he said.
“Why this double speak and double standards in politics? Why not apology for such an irresponsible remark?” (KNS)
