PDP making false claims to draw political mileage: Kashmiri students’ org

DEHRADUN: Accusing the PDP of drawing “political mileage” out of the trouble faced by Kashmiri students in Uttarakhand following the Pulwama attack, an organisation representing them on Wednesday said the party was making “false claims” about rescuing Valley students from Dehradun.

Jammu and Kashmir Students Organisation spokesman Nasir Khuehami said the PDP leadership did not respond to “our repeated phone calls” for help.

“The PDP is trying to make political mileage out of the issue by making false claims about rescuing students,” Khuehami told reporters.

“The PDP claims are nothing but false propaganda aimed to regain lost ground in Jammu and Kashmir. The fact is PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti did not respond even once while we were frantically trying to reach her on phone for help,” he added.
