Mehbooba refutes BJP chief's claim of bias against Jammu and Ladakh Jun 25, 2018 0 558 12345 IANSSrinagarFormer Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday denied emphatically that she discriminated against Jammu and Ladakh regions and wondered why none of the BJP ministers spoke about it till now if it was true. In a string of tweets, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief said that whatever happened during the time of the PDP-BJP rule in the state was in accordance with the Agenda of Alliance (AoA) the two parties had drawn up."Many false charges levelled against us by our former allies,"she said, in response to Amit Shah's statements made in Jammu a day earlier. "Our commitment to the AoA, co-authored by (BJP leader) Ram Madhav and endorsed by senior leaders like Rajnath (Singh) never wavered. It is sad to see them disown their own initiative and label it a 'soft approach'."Status quo on Article 370, dialogue with Pakistan and Hurriyat were a part of AoA. Encouraging dialogue, withdrawing cases against stone-pelters and the unilateral ceasefire were much needed measures to restore confidence on the ground. This was recognized and endorsed by the BJP."Allegations of discrimination against Jammu and Ladakh have no basis in reality. Yes, the (Kashmir) Valley has been in turmoil for a long time and the floods of 2014 were a setback, therefore needed focused attention. But that does not mean that there was any less development elsewhere,"she added.
