Mufti questions `silence` over graft in J&K
Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party chief
Mehbooba Mufti on Monday accused the Centre of remaining silent on
the issue of corruption in Jammu and Kashmir.
"They think it is in the national interest to maintain
silence, but by remaining silent they are weakening their
relationship with the people of Jammu and Kashmir," she said
while addressing an anti-corruption rally here.
Scores of party members led by Mehbooba and senior party
legislators marched from the PDP headquarters on the Residency
Road before being stopped by police near Regal Chowk here.
"Many Chief Ministers had to resign in the country and
many ministers are in the jail on charges of corruption. Even
Anna Hazare is asked to come clean, but when it comes to
corruption in Jammu and Kashmir all the people of our country
are silent," Mehbooba said addressing the rally at Regal Chowk.
"Today corruption is an issue in the entire country.
Likewise it is also an issue in this state.When
accountability can be demanded even from Anna Hazare, why not
from this government," she said.
