Mehbooba Barred  From Visiting “Illegal Mining Site”

SRINAGAR: Peoples Democratic Party President and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti Saturday said that authorities have barred her from visiting Rambiara Nalla in south Kashmir’s Shopian district.

Taking to a social networking site, Twitter Mehbooba wrote: “I was stopped from visiting Rambiara Nalla today by local admin. This is where sand extraction through illegal tenders has been outsourced to outsiders & locals are barred from the area.Our land & resources are being plundered by GOI that has nothing but contempt for us.”

“This is their warped idea of Naya Kashmir. Sand mafia is operating in broad daylight yet we are expected to remain quiet. As a leader, its my responsibility to articulate these grievances. But BJP is brazenly violating my rights & curbing my movements under guise of ‘security’,” Mehbooba tweeted.

“J&K has been turned into an open air prison but we will fight tooth & nail against this onslaught on our dignity, rights & identity,” she tweeted.
