Soz condemns house arrest of Mehbooba

Srinagar, Dec 9: Former Union Minister and senior Congress leader Prof Saifuddin Soz on Wednesday condemned house arrest of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

Mehbooba claimed to have been put under house for the third time during the past about a fortnight on Wednesday.

In a statement here this afternoon Prof Soz said BJP national spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain himself behaves as a member of a Gang when he lumps the Kashmir mainstream leadership as such.

 “One wonders why can’t the BJP leaders oppose Kashmir mainstream leadership, democratically”, he said adding Hussain and other senior BJP leaders Dr Jatinder Singh and Smriti Irani have not succeeded in gaining any foothold in Kashmir.

 “The worrisome situation is that since they (BJP leaders) are bound to experience total defeat in Kashmir, they will make more useless noise and pollute the political atmosphere”, he alleged

Prof Soz said “ I strongly condemn the incarceration of PDP President Mehbooba Mufti, who was not allowed to address political workers at Budgam and, instead she was put under house-arrest, illegally and undemocratically.”
