Hamirpur (HP), Aug 23 : Union Minister Anurag Thakur has flayed former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti over her statement that the situation in the union territory would turn like neighbouring countries(in an apparent reference to Afghanistan) if the Centre fails to restore Article 370.
Only those people who had looted the state were now upset, the Minister said.
“PDP leaders should understand that the states of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh are developing a lot under the BJP rule as they are freed from the clutches of those who had looted them for years together,” said Thakur while addressing the media here late on Sunday.
Responding to Ms Mufti’s statement, the Union Minister said that such things happened earlier and would not be allowed to be repeated.
Thakur said that the states of Jammu and Kashmir and Laddakh are on development path and would continue to thrive under the BJP regime.
On the fourth day of his Jan Ashirwad yatra Himachal Pradesh, a grand welcome was accorded to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur when he reached his home district of Hamirpur last night.
