Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Friday warned New Delhi of disastrous consequences if it continued with its design to break her People’s Democratic Party and equated such a scenario with that of the “ dacoity “ of votes in the 1987 elections that is etched in the history as the trigger for militancy.
Talking to media for the first time after she lost power following the withdrawal of the support by BJP to her government on June 19th , a bitter and angry Mehbooba Mufti minced no words in denouncing Delhi in what she described its designs to cause defections in her party ( to form a new government.
She told media after paying floral tributes to “ martyrs” of 1931 at Naqashbandi Sahab in Srinagar, that “ if Delhi does ( break her party) , the consequences would be as bad as when it crushed Muslim United Front ( MUF) in 1987 that gave birth to the militant leaders Salaha-ud-Din , Yasin Malik and others.
She is perturbed by the rebellion within her party – that has amplified after she lost the power last month . Her fear is that some of the vulnerable elements within her party may be lured by Delhi to form an alternate government . This thought ha been troubling her and she is threatening Delhi to demonstrate that Delhi is behind all the ills plaguing Kashmir .
Mehbooba, however, claimed that her party was united.
