‘Hurt patriotic sentiments’: Three leaders quit Mehbooba Mufti’s PDP | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: PDP leaders TS Bajwa, Ved Mahajan and Hussain A Waffa resigned from the party on Monday, saying they feel uncomfortable over “utterances which have hurt their patriotic sentiments”.
In their letter to party chief Mehbooba Mufti, the leaders said they are “feeling quite uncomfortable over some of her actions and undesirable utterances specially which hurt patriotic sentiments.”
The resignations come after Mufti, who was recently named as the deputy chairperson of People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration, said she is not interested in contesting elections or holding the tricolour till the constitutional changes enforced on August 5 last year are rolled back.
The Centre had last year scrapped the special status of Jammu & Kashmir and bifurcated the region into two Union Territories.
Mehbooba, who was released on October 14 after a 14-month detention, had said she would hold the national flag only when the separate flag of the erstwhile state is restored.
The BJP had hit out at Mufti for her “seditious” remarks on the tricolour and demanded her arrest.
