On the Centre’s decision to allow citizens from across India to buy land in Jammu and KashmirThe BJP has put J&K on sale, Mehbooba Mufti said, “Our resources are on sale. What about Pandits? The BJP had made big promises to them. . Outsiders are being invited. It wants to sell land to the people of J&K.”
Raising the issue of jobs in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti said, “Youth is without jobs. Youngsters don’t have any option than to pick up arms. Terror recruitment has increased. People from other states are getting jobs in Jammu and Kashmir,” Mehbooba Mufti said.
“The government needs to pursue [Atal Bihari] Vajpayee doctrine. The youth are feeling disenchanted,” the PDP chief said.
On the “unabated” ceasefire violations on the Line of Control (LoC), Mehbooba Mufti said, “Thousands of our people have sacrificed for the tricolour…J&K should become a bridge of peace between India and Pakistan.”
On the abrogation of Article 370, Mehbooba Mufti said, “Article 370 is not linked to Muslims or Hindus. It was enacted to protect the identity of J&K. People are now worried about their future. They [Centre] have not only abrogated Article 370, but have also desecrated Baba Saheb Ambedkar’s Constitution.”
