'I coerced HM Rajnath Singh': Mehbooba
Startling revelations

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Mar 26: PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, who could become J&K CM with the support of the "opportunist" BJP in 2016, is doing everything under the sun to retrieve her lost religio-political space in the Kashmir Valley, which elects 3 members to the Lok Sabha and returns 46 members to the J&K Assembly. She has turned so desperate to strike a chord with her alienated Kashmir constituency that she is attacking her own party men from right and left and making startling revelations to hurt the BJP's poll prospects.
On Monday, Mehbooba Mufti made several revelations while defending her decision to form coalition government with the BJP after her father's death - revelations which painted her own party men black and Union Home Minister Rajnath Sinh very weak.
Attacking her own party men and accusing them of being power hungry and unscrupulous, Mehbooba Mufti said: "After Mufti (Sayeed) Sahab's death, I didn't want to form the government but some of my own party members approached the BJP to form a government without me. I was forced to form the government because I couldn't let those people run a government in Kashmir. I thought if these people, who approached BJP for power, are allowed to run a government here, they could sell Kashmir's interests for more power. We gave these people (deserters) everything, accorded them respect yet they ditched and left us".
Mehbooba Mufti didn't spare her late father Mufti Sayeed as well. Reflecting on the decision of her father to join hands with the BJP, Mehbooba Mufti said his decision to shake hands with the BJP was like washing hands with supphuric acid.
"The PDP's decision to ally with BJP was like washing hands with 'sulphuric acid'; Mufti Sayeed took the decision for the welfare of the Kashmiri youth who had been bearing all the pain emanating due to the unresolved Kashmir issue," she said.
And explaining away her own decision to re-stitch an alliance with the BJP after her father's death, Mrhbooba Mufti made several revelations.
One, the PDP shook hands with the BJP so that "PDP workers could be adjusted in government jobs". "Just before the fall of my government, we had created 20,000 Chowkidar vacancies in the Education department for our workers," she also disclosed.
Two, she "forced BJP to relinquish FIRs against 12,000 Kashmiri youth" (in this case dreaded stone-pelters and over ground workers of terror outfits).
Three, she "forced the BJP to file FIRs against the Army and the CRPF".
Four, she "got interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma appointed".
Five, she "coerced Home Minister Rajnath Singh to call for talks".
The revelations which she made were of serious nature. The BJP needs to clear its position. It's a must all the more in the light of her statement that she "coerced Home Minister Rajnath Singh to call for talks".
