“What is going in the valley is nothing but a Pak sponsored Jihad in Kashmir”
Subramanian Swamy thinks ‘Mehbooba as incorrigible’ and equates Mehbooba Mufti with ‘tail of a dog’.
New Delhi : Swamy again hit straight the role of J&K Chief Minister for a peace process in the present unrest in the State. Senior BJP leader and nominated Rajya Sabha MP Dr Subramanian Swamy equated Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti with the “tail of a dog, which can’t be straightened” in a interview of a TV channel.
“There should be President’s rule in her place …she is like tail of a dog, which can’t be straightened,” said Swamy , in clear defiance of the party which is a partner in the PDP-led coalition government.
“Mehbooba kabhi sudhregi nahi” (Mehbooba will never change,)” said Swamy and added, “She has old links with terrorists”. He said the BJP formed a coalition government with Mehbooba on the hope she will “reform” herself.
Swamy’s comments fly in the face of the synergy between Mehbooba and PM Narendra Modi as was seen when they met last week and agreed on the common goal to combat terrorism and address popular demands.
“Laldenga was a terrorist but he became Mizoram chief minister and ran a successful government,” said Swamy. The Rajya Sabha MP wanted to clarify that even once terrorist could run a Govt. after rejecting the subversive attitude, but Mehbooba failed to change.
When asked whether his remark (as published in a TV channel) will put BJP in a trouble, Swamy told HENB this “I am not that person to reject truth for any cheap politics. Mehbooba Mufti and her father were never a friend of the uprooted Kashmiri Hindupeople and the pandits anyway. They had alleged link with separatists in Kashmir and this is very clear now with her intention to sit with the separatist again.”
“What is going in the valley is nothing but a Pak sponsored Jihad in Kashmir”, the veteran statesman of India told HENB.
