We were considered Pakistanis in Jammu, Indians in Kashmir: Mehbooba
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Apr 1: President Peoples Democratic Party Mehbooba Mufti Saturday blamed vested interest for launching a vicious campaign against PDP to create misunderstanding about the party in Kashmir and Jammu.
“Some vested interests have launched vicious campaign against PDP to create misunderstanding in Kashmir as well as in Jammu. We were considered Pakistanis in Jammu and Indians in the valley,” she claimed while addressing a public meeting here today.
Accusing National Conference leadership of creating a void between Kashmir and New Delhi, Mehbooba said: “The National Conference leadership has always maintained cordial relations with New Delhi since 1947 but ensured a division between the people of Jammu and Kashmir and rest of India.”
She alleged that it was the National Conference which has always been benefited from the division between the state and rest of the country.
Pointing towards the recent results of the elections in five states, PDP chief observed that people were fed up with the old parties and were looking for better alternatives to get their problems solved.
“People have seen the pace of developmental works and sense of security in the length and breadth of the state during the short stint of PDP rule,” she said, adding that her party would work assiduously to implement its policy of peace and reconciliation in the state.
Reiterating resolve of his party to restore sustainable peace in Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti said that party would create conducive atmosphere for the return of Kashmir Pandits migrants to their native places in the Valley.
