SRINAGAR: In her first pub­lic ap­pear­ance af­ter re­sign­ing as Jammu and Kash­mir (J&K) chief min­is­ter, PDP pres­i­dent Me­hbooba Mufti said any at­tempt by the Cen­tre to “en­gi­neer” a split in her party would have “ex­tremely dan­ger­ous” con­se­quences. Me­hbooba re­signed as chief min­is­ter on June 19 af­ter the BJP pulled out of the coali­tion with the PDP in the state.

“My party is strong, there are dif­fer­ences which can be re­solved. How­ever, if there are any at­tempts to en­gi­neer a split in the PDP like it was done in 1987 to crush the Mus­lim United Front, the re­sults will be ex­tremely dan­ger­ous,” she told the me­dia.
