'PDP office in Srinagar sealed,' says Mehbooba Mufti; asks 'Is this definition of normalcy'

Early times Report

Srinagar, Oct 29: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday claimed that the Jammu and Kashmir administration sealed her party office in Srinagar. Mufti also claimed that the PDP workers were arrested for organising a 'peaceful protest'.
The protest march, which was foiled by the administration, was being organised against the new land laws for Jammu and Kashmir from the PDP headquarters. A number of PDP leaders and supporters were detained by the police near the party office.
Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today said the BJP government that is “unable to fight the Chinese which has occupied huge land in Ladakh” is using all its powers to oppress Kashmiris and have turned Jammu and Kashmir into a jail.
Mehbooba Mufti was talking to reporters after she was not allowed to visit Kothibagh police station, where many of her party leaders and workers are being held. The party leaders were arrested on Thursday morning after they tried to stage a protest against land laws issued by the Centre on October 27.
Mehbooba said the BJP government has made situation in J&K such that it doesn’t allow anyone to talk. “Journalists cannot talk, civil society cannot talk, and politicians cannot talk,” she said. She said if people of J&K wouldn’t fight it together, these people would usurp everything of this place.
“They are not allowing anyone to talk. Their approach is communal,” she said. She said they have converted Jammu and Kashmir into a big jail.
“The BJP government is trying to grab our land through all illegal methods. We protested against it in Jammu yesterday. Here they didn’t allow protest and arrested my party leaders,” she said. “Every day the BJP says the situation is normal and they don’t even allow a former chief minister to visit a police station. They are unable to fight the Chinese which occupied thousands of kanals of our land but they are using all power to suppress people of J&K,” she said. She said the BJP government wants to loot the resources of J&K and it is out to wage cultural aggressions against Kashmiris and Dogras.
She said she isn’t a Twitter politician that she would keep quiet. “These orders from Delhi every day won’t be tolerated. One day you say only after 22 years of services government employee will be forced to retire, next day you come up with domicile law and third day you lay hands on the land and issue orders to grab it. This will not work. If you have so much power then go and force out the Chinese out of Ladakh. You are not taking even the name of China,” she said.
“We will not remain quiet. We will sabotage all your designs to loot Jammu and Kashmir and we will go to any extent,” she added. “There is total lawlessness in Jammu and Kashmir. People of J&K and Ladakh have seen the BJP’s ugly face and their designs on J&K. The BJP doesn’t care about Dogras and Ladakhis and Kashmiris they don’t give any regard. The BJP wants to grab land of J&K and hand it over to big industrialists,” she added.
Under the new land laws, notified on October 27 by the BJP government, no domicile or permanent resident certificate is required to purchase non-agricultural land in J&K. Earlier, Article 35-A of J&K Constitution, revoked on August 5, 2019 amid communication blockade and military siege, placed prohibitions on the sale of land to those who were not state subjects. The central government has even empowered an army commander to declare any area in J&K strategic for operational and training requirement of the armed forces.
