Srinagar, April 28: The People's Democratic Party (PDP) president and former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Thursday censured the administration for drum beating the “hollow slogans” of normalcy while thousands of Panches and Sarpanches continue to be holed up in dingy clusters against their will.
A party sattment said that bringing to fore the fact that while GOI boasts about strengthening Panchayat institutions, Mehbooba Mufti said, the reality is these Panches and Sarpanches cannot even visit their homes.
"Multiple representations from these PRI members have shared gory stories about the pathetic living conditions, insecurity and how they feel deceived, suffocated in clusters without even the freedom to visit their homes and villages let alone be of service to the people. Administration should facilitate their visit to homes and ensure security so that they can at least meet their family on Eid," Mehbooba Mufti said.
On the occasion Mehbooba Mufti also urged the government of India to release all political prisoners languishing in jails on humanitarian grounds before Eid.
