The Gupkar Alliance has moved to Supreme Court seeking early hearings of a batch of petitions challenging abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir. Former J&K Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party Chief Mehbooba Mufti addresses press over this issue and makes a controversial remark on terrorism.
Mufti says ‘Militancy has increased in their tenure. 10-15 youth are together joining militancy from each village. Because you have suppressed the voice, people don't have an option left. A youth thinks he can either go to jail or pick up arms. So he thinks he better to pick up arms and die because you don't allow people to speak’.
