New Delhi: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti got emotional after hearing her father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s voice in a video for Kashmir Tourism.
Speaking at the Bharat International Tourism Bazar function in Delhi, Mehbooba Mufti said her state was safer for women than Delhi. “There is no fear of getting raped in a car,” she asserted. She said her state offered safety for tourist women.
Delhi Tourism Minister Kapil Mishra however asked how she can “not accept Burhan Wani as a terrorist” and still expect tourism to increase?
Mishra’s comments, directed at Mufti, invited protests from her entourage.
Mishra left the venue, saying he does not want to share the dais with her after he was forced to stop his address following strong protests from some in the audience and officials accompanying Mufti.
He had also asserted that tourism and terrorism cannot go together.
