SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti was on February 8 detained by police during a protest in Delhi against the anti-encroachment drive.
Along with Mufti, several other PDP workers were also detained by the Delhi police.
“We had come to inform the public, opposition parties and members of the ruling BJP about the misery faced by the public at large in Jammu and Kashmir. If we can’t go to Parliament, I wonder where we should go then. Does the government want us to get our grievances redressed at the United Nations,” Mehbooba said.
There is no rule of law that can be seen in Jammu and Kashmir and “we came all the way to Delhi to speak our hearts out. But it seems that here also the voice of the general public is muzzled,” she said.
