Mehbooba Mufti warns Delhi against breaking PDP, says it will lead to 1987-like situation

Prime News, National (Srinagar), July 13:- In a veiled attack on the BJP, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has warned that any attempt to beak her party People’s Democratic Party (PDP) will lead to serious consequences.

Speaking to reporters, Mehboba Mufti said, ”Delhi’s attempt to split the PDP will give birth to separatists like Yasin Malik and Syed Salahuddin. Any attempt to break PDP will only lead to a 1987-like situation.”

(”Agar Dilli ne 1987 ki tarah yahan ki awam ke vote pe daaka dala, agar iss kism ki tod fod ki koshish ki, jis tarah ek Salahuddin ek Yasin Malik ne janm liya…agar Dilliwalon ne PDP ko todne ki koshish ki uski nataish bahut zyada khatarnaak hogi,” she said.)

Mehbooba Mufti made these remarks weeks after the BJP severed its ties with PDP and pulled out of the ruling coalition government in J&K.

Though the PDP leader did not name BJP, it is being seen as a direct warning to the saffron party.

Mufti had earlier warned the BJP soon after it ended its ties with PDP and said that any attempt to engineer defections in her party “will erode the trust of the Kashmiris in Indian democracy”.

“If Delhi intervenes and breaks our party, and makes Sajad Lone or whosoever as the Chief Minister, it will erode the trust of the Kashmiris in Indian democracy. Any intervention from Delhi will be taken seriously,” the PDP chief had said.

She said this amid reports of BJP trying to engineer a split in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) after breaking away from its erstwhile ally, in order to form a government in the J&K. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
