People’s Democratic Party (PDP) President and Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday lashed out at the authorities for creating a sense of siege which saw a Sub Divisional Magistrate being roughed up by Army personnel in south Kashmir. She demanded action against those involved in the incident.
“There are reports that a Sub Divisional Magistrate along with his some of his staff members have been roughed up by some security personnel and even their Mobile Phones have been damaged. Such unruly behaviour has become the norm. I condemn this high handedness and seek exemplary punishment against those found guilty,” she said.
“Earlier we saw a cancer patient being stopped and not allowed to travel on the highway. Now we are told he is no more. God knows what Governor has turned the whole thing into. Are we living in martial law times? “She asked.
Mehbooba asked people to strengthen PDP by voting its candidate in the forthcoming elections so as to ensure that party moves forward to get people of the state rid of all the miseries that they are faced with.
