Mehbooba said: “Having navigated the rough terrain of a predominantly male political landscape myself, I am happy to see that finally the Women Reservation Bill will become a reality."
Reacting sharply to the Home Ministry’s report on Kashmir, PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, on Wednesday, hit out at the BJP saying; its “politics of deceit” has dragged down even the Home Ministry.
“Shocked that BJP’s politics of deceit has dragged down even the Home Ministry. Not only does this report reek of lies but it also discredits a crucial portfolio once headed by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel,” Mehbooba said in a series of tweets.
Also hitting out at the government and the media, Mehbooba tweeted; “All of GOIs brazen lies are passed off as the truth since a pliable media assists them in carrying these lies to the masses. Instead of seeking accountability from the government, they have put the public on a slow drip of hatred against minorities”.
“At least we the so called ‘dynasts’ worked diligently hard to stand where we are today. None of us have been airdropped into heading BCCI”, she added.
Contesting the figures of investment and development referred in the report, Mehbooba said; Investment in J&K since 2019 as per MHA report is Rs. 56,000 crore. Official figures given in Parliament by the same ministry said that the investment was Rs.1084 crores.
Showcasing Panchayat elections in J&K as their biggest achievement is also a “farce”. The first Panchayat election held here was under Sheikh sahab (Sheikh Abdullah).
