‘Anti-encroachment drive’ new weapon for BJP – Mehbooba Mufti

Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti has said that the so-called anti-encroachment drive launched in Indian Jammu and Kashmir is a new weapon for the BJP’s government to persecute the Kashmiri people and uproot them from their homes.

Mehbooba Mufti talking to reporters in Srinagar said, “This is a new weapon being used by the BJP government, like they have the UAPA, PSA, NIA, ED and other agencies, to persecute the people of Jammu and Kashmir and uproot them from their homes”.

“Otherwise, China has occupied 20,000 square kilometres of our land, let the government take that land back first,” she added.

Mufti said some of the people who have been targeted through the anti-encroachment drive possessed their land since the time of Hindu Maharaja Hari Singh, like the Hotel Nedous in Srinagar.

“First they created a wedge between Hindus and Muslims, then between Gujjars and Bakerwals and Shias and Sunnis. Now, they are creating a wedge between the rich and the poor by saying they are going against the rich, while the truth is that the houses of poor people are being demolished”.
