Jammu, September 16, 2021 (PPI-OT):In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President, Mehbooba Mufti, has said that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is using “threats and sticks” to silence the people.
Talking to media in Haveli area of Poonch district in Jammu region, the PDP chief said the BJP is disempowering the public of even the little rights which have been left with them after abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of the erstwhile state into Union territories in August 2019. “People are troubled everywhere, whether it is Jammu or Kashmir, all the matters are run by the power of stick,” Mehbooba Mufti said.
When asked about her stand on the Jammu and Kashmir assembly elections, she said, “Elections are not my objective but polls are a democratic weapon to fight for the rights of the people and address their problems. We will come out with our decision when they will announce the polls (in J and K).”
