Former J&K chief minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday blamed the BJP for passing “brazen lies” as the truth.
Reacting to a ministry report on Jammu and Kashmir, she tweeted, “Shocked that BJP’s politics of deceit has dragged down even the home ministry. Not only does this report reek of lies but it also discredits a crucial portfolio once headed by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel,” Mehbooba said in a series of tweets.
On the part of the report where it said democracy in Jammu and Kashmir earlier meant only ‘three families’, the former ally of the BJP also made an oblique reference to BCCI secretary Jay Shah, who is son of Union home minister Amit Shah.
“At least we the so called ‘dynasts’ worked diligently hard to stand where we are today. None of us have been airdropped into heading BCCI,” she said.
As per the figures presented in Parliament, investments worth ₹840.55 crore were made in 2017-18; ₹590.97 crore in 2018-19; ₹296.64 crore in 2019-2020 and ₹412.74 crore in 2020-21, while the number was ₹376.76 crore in the current year, she said.
The government had earlier said that investment projects worth ₹10,000 crore were under execution in Jammu and Kashmir, while proposals to the tune of ₹60,000 crore were being processed.
“All of GOIs brazen lies are passed off as the truth since a pliable media assists them in carrying these lies to the masses. Instead of seeking accountability from the government, they have put the public on a slow drip of hatred against minorities,” she further said.
