BJP’s policies took J&K back decades: Mehbooba Mufti

By PTI

Srinagar: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday alleged that the BJP government’s policies on Jammu and Kashmir have taken the union territory “back by decades”.

The former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister made the remarks in response to photographs and videos on social media showing security forces frisking women and minors during surprise inspections at Lal Chowk and other commercial areas of the city.

“This is the essence of the current situation in Kashmir where women and even children are now suspicious. BJP has brought J&K here. Their policies have taken us decades back,” he said in a tweet.

The investigation was intensified in the city and elsewhere in the Valley following the recent killings of civilians, including non-local labourers, by terrorists.
