Mufti on BJP’s policies on J&K: “taken us back by decades”

Mehboob Mufti

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 Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir was responding to a tweet, which shows security forces frisking women and minors during surprise checks at Srinagar’s Lal Chowk. 

The checks have intensified across the Valley in the wake of the recent killings of civilians, including non-local labourers, by militants.
