Mehbooba wants GoI to repeat last year's mistake again
Turns spokesperson of terrorists again, pokes her nose into affairs which don't fall in her domain

Early Times Report
jammu, May 5: President of Peoples Democratic Party and former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti, just one day before the last round of the Parliamentary polls in south Kashmir's Anantnag district has once again tried to project herself as the spokesperson of the terrorists active in the Valley.
On Saturday she appealed the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to announce the ceasefire in Kashmir in the holy month of Ramadan like last year. She also called upon the terrorists to stop their actions in this month. "Last year when Mehbooba was the Chief Minister of the state she had compelled the Ministry of Home Affairs to announce the unilateral Ramadan ceasefire. The MHA obliged her but the terrorists didn't. The one-month long unilateral truce in 2018 provided a chance to terrorists to regroup and strike at their own will," said an analyst.
He said that this year also Mehbooba wants the Centre to repeat the same mistake. "At present terrorists are under tremendous pressure as the security forces have tightened the noose around them. This pressure has to continue to ensure that terrorism is eliminated from the Valley," the analyst added.
He said that Mehbooba, who is contesting the parliamentary elections from south Kashmir's Anantnag constituency, by pitching for Ramadan ceasefire just before the last round of the Lok Sabha elections in Pulwama and Shopian districts has made a last ditch attempt to appease the terrorists and their sympathizers. "She can't think beyond separatism as her entire politics during all these years has revolved around the terrorists and their bosses sitting across the Line of Control," the analyst added.
He said in 2018, terrorists took full advantage of the security forces suspending the "Operation All Out" against them. The cold blooded murder of Editor Rising Kashmir, Shujaat Bukhari, in broad day light, in heart of the city sent shockwaves across the Valley. "Had the GoI not announced the ceasefire, terrorists would not have dared to kill Bukhari along with his guards in heart of the city," said a Kashmir watcher.
He said that Mehbooba should focus on saving her party from becoming extinct as many leaders are waiting for the results of the Lok Sabha polls to say goodbye to her. "The Government of India doesn't need her advice as the people sitting in the national capital know how they have to handle the crisis," the Kashmir watcher added.
He said, "Mehbooba seems to have developed a habit of poking her nose into the affairs which don't fall in her domain."
