Srinagar: Rejecting Mehbooba Mufti’s charges as ‘plethora of lies’, the ruling National Conference Wednesday said the opposition leader had assembled “paid labourers” at her gathering in Kupwara yesterday. “Mufti Saeed and his supporters have been proven as exploitative elements. It was during Mufti regime that Jammu and Kashmir was ranked as the second most corrupt state in India , and funds worth 24,000 crore rupees from the Central government meant for the development of the state were pilfered,” a spokesman said. “Only ribbons were cut but no work was done and by accusing National Conference Mehbooba Mufti is trying to cover up the sins of her father,” the spokesman said. “It was Mufti Saeed who gave armed forces special powers to carry out the genocide of Kashmiris, and who gave nod to the catch and kill operation,” the spokesman added. “Mufti fulfilled the agenda of BJP by getting the property rights bill passed in the Assembly. There were 110 human rights violation cases in his tenure but no probe was ordered , and worse it was during Mufti’s regime that Kashmir to face the biggest embarrassment when the infamous sex scandal came to fore but was swept under the carpet,” the spokesman said. “Who is not aware of Mufti’s role in toppling elected governments in Jammu and Kashmir? Who is not aware of Mufti and Jagmohan’s attempts to turn the Muslim majority of the state into a minority,” the spokesman said. Observer News Service
