Mehbooba Mufti took to the micro-blogging site X (formerly Twitter) and said: “Amusing to find an FIR filed against me for apparently flouting MCC.

Our protest was against GOI in cahoots with local administration for detaining hundreds of PDP polling agents & workers in the hours leading upto voting. Still not satisfied the same administration went onto launch Cordon & Search Operations in traditional PDP stronghold areas to terrorise our voters and prevent them from exercising their right to vote. Ulta chor kotwal ko daante”.
