Jammu: Congress today alleged that the Jammu and Kashmir government has booked hardline separatist leader Masarat Alam Bhat under the stringent Public Safety Act under pressure from BJP. “Sayeed’s bluff has been called. He has been forced to slap PSA on Masarat Alam under pressure from BJP and shift him to Kot Bakwal jail in Jammu,” Congress Legislative Party Leader Nawang Rigzin Jora told reporters here.
Jora further said that the Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed actions were being criticised by the separatist, mainstream politicians and the civil society of the Valley as well. “This was bound to happen. While trying to cast himself in the role of a statesman, Sayeed ended up biting more than he could chew. Sayeed raised expectations so high that it was impossible to deliver on them,” Jora alleged.
