Srinagar:: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief and former J&K chief minister Mehbooba Mufti Sunday extolled her party workers as “real mujahideen.”
Addressing a large gathering in Kupwara district, Mehbooba said even though a PDP worker “may not have a gun or stone in his hands, he is the real mujahid.”
“Your contribution to the society is far greater than the contribution of workers of other parties that have been around for decades,” she said.
Mehbooba said every Kashmiri should feel proud of PDP as every single worker of the party is an “asli mujahid” (Real rebel).
She said the PDP was only the party which gave “relief to Kashmiris from POTA, police task force, and set up universities and colleges.”
The party also realised the “dream of opening Muzaffarabad- Srinagar route,” she said.
PDP president said the PDP believed in acting as “a bridge between Pakistan and Kashmir so that every Kashmiri will have excess to anywhere he wants to go whether it is Afghanistan or Iran.”
Mehbooba said her father Mufti Saeed’s tenure as chief minister was a “success due to opening of traditional routes linking Kashmir to rest of the world.”
