A day after Amit Shah attacked her at a rally in Jammu, the PDP president and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti Sunday hit back at former ally BJP, terming the saffron party’s allegations and reasons for withdrawing support to the coalition government led by her as false. “Allegations of discrimination against Jammu &Ladakh have no basis in reality,” Mufti said in a series of tweets.
The BJP has repeatedly cited discrimination against Jammu and Ladakh regions and “deteriorating situation” in the state as reasons for withdrawing support to Mufti-led PDP-BJP coalition government.
At a rally in Jammu on Saturday, Shah launched a scathing attack on PDP, saying the Mufti-led government had discriminated against Jammu and Ladakh.
“We cannot be part of any such government that discriminates against Jammu and Ladakh regions and fails to restore peace. We will also not allow any such government to run in the state,” Shah had said at the rally.
On Sunday, Mufti retaliated saying the coalition government functioned according to the alliance agenda co-authored by the BJP man in charge of J&K, Ram Madhav which was endorsed by the ruling party’s senior leaders like home minister Rajnath Singh.
