Srinagar: Asserting that law for reservations in promotions was first brought by her father Mufti Mohammad Syed during his term as CM in 2004, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti said she support it wholeheartedly, but the manner NDA adopted it is unconstitutional with sole motive of disempowering J&K’s constitution.
