Mehbooba Mufti placed under house arrest Questions J&K administration’s normalcy claim
People’s Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti was put under house detention on Tuesday and she claimed that the decision of Jammu and Kashmir authorities to restrain her movement had “exposed the Government’s claims of normalcy”. She also hit out at the Centre alleging that while the Government was expressing concern for the rights of the people in Afghanistan, the same were being denied to Kashmiris.
“I’ve been placed under house arrest today because according to admin (administration) the situation is far from normal in Kashmir. This exposes their fake claims of normalcy,” Mehbooba, who is the last Chief Minister of the erstwhile State, tweeted. “GOI expresses concern for the rights of Afghan people but wilfully denies the same to Kashmiris,” she added. Mehbooba posted pictures of a security forces’ vehicle blocking the main gate of her Gupkar residence.
