Mehbooba Mufti hints at snapping ties with BJP
Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti hinted on Friday she could snap ties with coalition partner BJP if the Centre didn’t announce confidence-building measures (CBMs) to end the political stalemate in Jammu and Kashmir and form a government.
At a meeting in Jammu, Mehbooba told party workers the new measures were aimed at creating a “positive atmosphere” before the new government was formed.
She said the announcement shouldn’t be construed as a “blackmailing” tactic.
