BJP flays Mehbooba for ‘desperate’ statement on Kashmir situation
TAKING strong exceptions to former J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s statement that any attempt to split PDP will only create more separatists, BJP on Friday lashed out at their former ally and said she should stop sounding ‘so desperate’.
“This is an absurd comment. She must stop sounding so desperate,” BJP spokesman GVL Narasimha Rao said. On her remarks that any split in PDP will only create more Yasin Malik and Salahuddin, Rao wondered whether Mufti was ‘equating her party PDP Mujahideen’.
He said that the on-going developments with several PDP legislators attacking Mufti’s leadership only shows that “she is losing control”. “Whatever is happening in her party is only an internal matter,” he said.
Another BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi sarcastically commented: “Ghar sambhal nahi sakte, aur mohalley mein shor macha rahen haen (It is a classic case of someone making noise in the entire locality after he or she cannot run his or her home)”.
