Won't Contest J&K Polls Until Both Constitutions Applied: Mehbooba Mufti

Srinagar:

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti mentioned on Monday that she is not going to contest elections till each the constitutions of India and the previous state are made relevant to Jammu and Kashmir.

“Personally, it (abrogation of article 370 and 35-A) is very emotional for me. I contested the first election taking oath under the constitutions of India and state. I took both flags in my hands. Until both constitutions will not be (existing) together (in J-K), I have said I will not personally contest elections,” the previous chief minister advised reporters.

Replying to a query on contesting elections and turning into a chief minister, she mentioned the PDP has a number of succesful folks and never simply Mehbooba Mufti alone.

Ms Mufti additionally criticised the Jammu and Kashmir administration over its determination to sack sons of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin from authorities companies, saying “you can’t hold a child responsible for the actions of his father until and unless you have proof”.

“I have said this again and again, you can capture a man but not an idea. You’ve to address the idea, as Vajpayee ji did. Witch-hunting, criminalisation of dissent is taking our nation back,” she added.

The Jammu and Kashmir administration had sacked 11 of its workers, together with the sons of the Hizbul Mujahideen chief and two from the police division, for allegedly working as overground staff for terrorist organisations, officers mentioned on Saturday.
