SRINAGAR: Terming the Enforce Directorate (ED) summons to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti a part of vindictive politics practised by the central government, PDP General Secretary G N Lone Hanjura has asserted that such tactics won’t dampen the will of the people of Jammu & Kashmir to struggle for the restoration of their constitutional rights.
In a statement issued here, Hanjura termed the ED summon as yet another ploy to try and arm-twist the people and leadership of Jammu and Kashmir, to kill dissent and disagreement across regions and to silence the genuine demand of restoration of the August 4, 2019, constitutional status of J&K.
“Such tactics won’t dampen our will to have our constitutional status restored. This is the price one pays when we oppose BJP’s ideology and divisive politics,” Hanjura said.
“Recent events are witness to how BJP has been employing coercive measures through various agencies to target opposition leaders across the country and GOI is resorting to a game of witch-hunt and suppressions in Jammu and Kashmir as well,” he added.
