Peoples Democratic Party President, Mehbooba Mufti Monday hit out at the government of India for dismissing a teacher from service “in the interest of the security of the state.”
The former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, while taking to her Twitter handle said, “In the middle of a pandemic GOI should focus on saving lives instead of firing govt employees on flimsy grounds in Kashmir. No wonder its misplaced priorities have converted India into shamshanghats & kabristans. The living continue to suffer & the dead are deprived of dignity.”
