Srinagar- PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said while New Delhi was "preaching" other countries to treat minorities in a dignified way, the plight of minorities in India was getting worse.
Mufti was referring to External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar's statement during his visit to Sri Lanka.
It is in Sri Lanka's own interest that the expectations of the Tamil people, for equality, justice, peace and dignity, within a united Sri Lanka are fulfilled, Jaishankar said in Colombo.
The former chief minister of the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state said in a tweet, "Preaching to other countries about treating minorities in a dignified way even though the plight of minorities in India is getting worse."
