Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and former J&K chief minister Mehbooba Mufti has filed her nomination from Anantnag parliamentary constituency for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2019.
Anantnag district will go to the polls in the third phase on April 23.
Mufti took a jibe at Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s ‘separatist psyche’ comment. She said a ‘New India’ where those who kill and lynch in the name of religion are feted and garlanded is ‘unacceptable’. Jaitley had said, the statements of mainstream parties in Kashmir create ‘separatist psyche’ and were ‘not acceptable to new India’.
“If standing up for the people made her a separatist and anti-national, she would wear such a badge with honour” : Mehbooba added.
