Srinagar: Days after Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kashmir, Vijay Kumar warned mainstream leaders for instigating masses with fake news and rumours, the Peoples Democracy Party (PDP) President Mehbooba Mufti Monday on Monday said that the top cop must do his duty and she’ll do her own.

“Let IGP Kashmir do his duty. I will do my job the way I am doing. If the police want to arrest me for what I am doing, so be it,” Mehbooba told reporters at her Gupkar residence after being re-elected as the PDP chief.

Interestingly, in his recent presser, IGP Kashmir Vijay Kumar without naming any politician had stated that some political leaders were instigating people by spreading false rumours. He had stated that police won’t hesitate in preparing a dossier and if needed, action would also be taken against such politicians.

The PDP chief said that she continue to strive hard to take forward her father late Mufti Muhammad Sayed’s mission and vision.

“I want to see the end to the sufferings of people that include denial of the body of a slain son to his father. I won’t allow Kashmir to become a ring of war for India and Pakistan and instead Kashmir should become a bridge of peace between the two nations. Dialogue is the best way to resolve issues,” she said.

“I don’t Understand Hindi, Please ask me question in Urdu,” Mehbooba said when asked about her future strategy by a reporter in Hindi, one of the official languages incorporated by the centre recently.

“I think the workers have once again given me responsibility and I’m alive to it given the fact that we are in a different situation.

The situation is difficult and there are many challenges before the state,” she said after the reported asked the question in Urdu.
