SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday charged that “repression” was the Centre’s only method to deal with the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Mehbooba wrote: “Even after turning Kashmir into an open air prison, [General] Bipin Rawat’s statement comes as no surprise because repression is GOIs only method to deal with the situation in J&K. It also contradicts their official narrative that all is well here.”

“After taking such stringent, harsh & repressive measures like mass arrests, suspension of the internet at will, frisking people (not sparing even kids), seizing bikes plus two wheelers & setting up new security bunkers all over what is left to do?” she tweeted.

She was reacting to the remarks by Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat warning of further curbs in Kashmir.
