Will Mehbooba say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’, asks Sena
In wake of PDP staking claim to form government in J&K with BJP’s support, Shiv Sena on Monday sought to know if chief ministerial candidate Mehbooba Mufti will now chant ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ in the honour of Kashmiri Pandits who lost their lives in terror attacks.
“BJP and Mehbooba have never been comfortable with each other. Her anti-national talks and her affinity towards extremists have created controversies in the past and she has openly had a soft corner for those who raised anti-national slogans,” party said in mouthpiece ‘Saamana’. “Thus, BJP may be satisfied with supporting her for the CM’s post but the country is worried about it. The BJP is of the view that saying ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ is way of expressing nationalism. But will Mehbooba chant the slogan?” the ruling alliance partner asked.
