SRINAGAR, Jul. 31, 2023 (TBINN)

Founder of P.D.P. Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had put a precondition before Prime Minister Narendra Modi for government-formation in Jammu and Kashmir in 2015, seeking an assurance that Article 370 of the Constitution will not be removed by the Centre, party president Mehbooba Mufti claimed today.

Addressing a gathering on the 24th foundation day of People’s Democratic Party (P.D.P.) in Srinagar, Mehbooba Mufti said her father Sayeed was not power-hungry and wanted to address Jammu and Kashmir’s problems and troubles.

“When Mufti sahib had 28 seats (in the 2014 Assembly polls), he met Modi and gave his list of conditions for government formation. He took the assurance from the B.J.P. Government (at the Centre) that (Article) 370 will not be touched. He tied their hands. He was not after power, otherwise he would not take three months to form the (coalition) government (in Jammu and Kashmir),” she said.

Mehbooba Mufti alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party backtracked from its commitments and accused it of trying to pressure on the people of Jammu and Kashmir into subjugation.

“The BJP wants us to throw in the towel. We will not do it…. If all of us — Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Gujjars, Paharis — stand united, we will make the B.J.P. give up,” she said.

Mehbooba Mufti, the only woman to become the chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, said her father had the courage to stand for people.
