SRINAGAR, Feb. 15, 2023 (TBINN) Criticising the ongoing anti-encroachment drive, P.D.P. president Mehbooba Mufti today accused the Bhartiya Janta Party-led Centre of using Jammu and Kashmir to divert attention of the country from pressing issues such as unemployment and Adani row.
To divert attention from the Adani issue and damage it has done to the economy of the country, they (B.J.P.) don’t get anything better than Jammu and Kashmir, like demolition drive, Mehbooba told reporters in Srinagar.
Asked about Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s comments about the restoration of statehood to Jammu and Kashmir, the former chief minister said they do not make statements, they make jumlas. He himself said the promises of two crore jobs and Rs 15 lakh in every bank account were election jumla (rhetoric), she reminded.
