Mehbooba accuses BJP of exploiting KPs for political gains

Excelsior Correspondent

Srinagar, Apr 9: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today alleged that BJP utilized the suffering of Kashmiri Pandits to bolster its vote bank across the country.
Mufti accused the BJP of exploiting their pain and anguish, seeking votes in their name without delivering on the promises.
Mufti while talking to reporters following a condolence meeting for a Kashmiri Pandit family friend alleged that since the BJP-led Center assumed direct control of Jammu and Kashmir, even Kashmiri Pandits who once resided here have departed due to the prevailing circumstances.

Addressing the issue of Kashmiri Pandits’ return to the valley, Mehbooba emphasized that the community does not rely on Government assistance.
“Our Kashmiri Pandit brothers and sisters are enduring difficult conditions in Jammu or elsewhere. I believe they do not require anyone’s aid to resettle here-whether it be from the BJP Government, Mehbooba Mufti, or anyone else. The people of Kashmir want Kashmiri Pandits to return,” said the PDP President.
