General secretary of the All India Congress Committee and in charge of the East UP, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Wednesday attacked the ruling BJP led Centre as politicians from Jammu and Kashmir completed six months under detention on Tuesday.
“Six months ago we were asking how long this will carry on?” she said in a tweet, remembering two senior ex-chief ministers Farooq Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti, who were “incarcerated without any charges.”
However, given the developments since the abrogation of Article 370 and the reconstitution of Jammu and Kashmir as a Union Territory, Gandhi wonders if “we are still a democracy or not.”
“Its been six months since two Ex-Chief Ministers have been incarcerated without any charges and millions of people were locked down in J&K.
Six months ago we were asking how long this will carry on?
Now we are asking whether we are still a democracy or not.” Vadra tweeted.
