Says It Will Create More Salahuddins, Yasin Maliks
SRINAGAR Former Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti on Friday said any attempt by the BJP government at the Centre to engineer a split in her party will have extremely dangerous consequences.
My party is strong, there are differences which can be resolved, Mehbooba said in her first public appearance since she resigned as chief minister on June 19 after the Bharatiya Janata Party pulled out of the coalition with her party and withdrew support to her government.
However, if there are any attempts to engineer a split in the PDP like it was done in 1987 to commit robbery on people’s vote and to crush the MUF (Muslim United Front), the results will be extremely dangerous, she told reporters here.
Mehbooba also recalled that the events post the 1987 Assembly elections had created Syed Salahuddin, the supremo of the Hizbul Mujahideen, and Mohammad Yasin Malik, the pro-Independence Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front chief.
