SRINAGAR: Even after more than one-year-long detention, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Friday dared to put the State flag of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir State in her maiden press conference after her release.
State flag along with party flag was displayed in front of her while she was addressing media persons at her Gupkar residence.
Pertinently, Mehbooba Mufti while addressing the press conference said “My flag is this (pointing to the J&K flag on the table in front of her). When this flag comes back, we’ll raise that flag (tricolour) too. Until we get our own flag back, we won’t raise any other flag…This flag forged our relationship with that flag.”
“Our relationship with the flag of this country is not independent of this flag (Jammu and Kashmir’s flag). When this flag comes in our hand, we will raise that flag too.”
Mehbooba Mufti was arrested during the intervening night of August 4,5 , prior to revocation of Article 370 and 35-A by Narendra Modi led BJP government.
