Srinagar: Former chief minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president, Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday blamed National Conference (NC) for the current proceedings of National Investigation Agency (NIA) in Jammu and Kashmir.
Mehbooba while talking to reporters at Baramulla on the sidelines of the party rally said that it was National Conference-Congress regime led by Omar Abdullah in 2009 who brought NIA to JK.
“Like POTA, NC during its tenure has brought the NIA to the State and we were against the move at that time as well,” she said.
She also said that oppressive measures through NIA won’t yield any result to Kashmir issue, but a political solution is the only way out to resolve the issues. “You cannot resolve the issues by imposing bans and seizing the properties but a political issue needs a political resolution only,” Mehbooba said.
