NEW DELHI, May 21: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said that she won’t contest Assembly elections until Article 370 is restored in J&K. She stated, “I don’t see Assembly elections being held in the near future.”
While interacting with the media, Mufti further stated that the G-20 is an event for the country but the BJP has “hijacked it.” She also accused BJP of replacing the G20 logo with that of a lotus, stating that “the logo should have been something related to the country, not a party.”
She went on to say that instead of G20, holding the SAARC summit would be more appropriate to establish India’s leadership in the region.
Amid strain in ties India-Pakistan ties, the biennial SAARC summits have not taken place since the 2014 meeting in Kathmandu.
“G20 is an event for the country but BJP has hijacked it, they have even replaced the logo with Lotus, the logo should have been something related to the country, not a party…it is the SAARC that will establish the leadership of our country within this region…why not have a SAARC summit and address our problem…,” she told media on the preparations for the G-20 grouping meeting on tourism in Srinagar from May 22 to 24.
