SRINAGAR — Former Chief Minister of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir and President Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday said that she was again detained for the third time in less than a fortnight.

“Illegally detained today for the third time in less than a fortnight. Too much democracy indeed. If my movements are curbed due to ‘security concerns’ then why are BJP ministers allowed to campaign freely in Kashmir while I’ve been asked to wait until culmination of DDC elections?, tweeted president PDP, Mehbooba Mufti.

By “too much democracy”, Mehbooba was apparently referring to NITI AAYOG CEO Amitabh Kant’s purported remarks on Tuesday that “tough” reforms are “very difficult in the Indian context,” as “we are too much of a democracy”.

Meanwhile, in a police communication to Director SSG, police have said that in view of the prevailing security scenario and recent inputs received from intelligence agencies regarding movement of militant groups in the Budgam area, it’s requested that the tour programme of Mehbooba Mufti may be deferred till culmination of elections.
