Srinagar, December 20,:
Castigating Government for using Army to interfere in civilian matters, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today said that bringing the Army has exposed Government of India’s fake good governance narrative in Jammu and Kashmir.
Mehbooba Mufti took to social media and wrote: “GOI has made its criminal agenda behind scrapping J&Ks special status clear. Motive behind state sponsored loot of our natural resources – illegal auction of sand mining to outsiders, conversion of agricultural land to privatizing power transmission is to plunge J&K into chaos.”
She further wrote: “Bringing the Army into such matters has further exposed their fake good governance narrative & ensure that people here live in perpetual fear of the jackboot. Such harebrained tactics & policies will only deepen the sense of alienation & suffocation that people of J&K feel.”
Pertinently, Government deployed Army in Jammu to manage power crisis in wake of strike by Power Development Department against privatization of power in Jammu and Kashmir. (KNT)
