Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said that banning civilian movement on Jammu-Srinagar national highway twice a week was none of their (Govt’s) business. “It is for people to decide which road to travel by and when.”
PDP president and candidate for South Kashmir’s Lok Sabha constituency further reacted to the statements over the collapsing of PDP-BJP coalition government, saying that BJP leaders are making different statements over the falling of government but the fact is that she was insisting them to implement agenda of alliance.
“I was insisting them (BJP) not to revoke 370, revoke AFSPA and continuation of ceasefire that created conflict between us (PDP-BJP). PDP was also demanding dropping of two ministers over Rassana case and the step we took regarding dropping the cases against 12000 youth due to which the coalition government collapsed,” she said.
Mehbooba was talking to media persons on the sidelines of the function at Tangmarg.
She said that Jammu and Kashmir is of its people and nobody has a right to restrict their movement anyway.
She, however, refused to comment over the statements made by NC president Dr. Farooq Abdullah, saying “He is an elderly person and everybody knows his statements made in the morning change in the evening.”
