Mehbooba calls it ‘GOIs tactics to intimidate & browbeat political opponents’
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday summoned former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and PDP President Mehbooba Mufti to its Delhi office in connection with a money laundering case.
According to a notice served to former CM Mehbooba Mufti by the probe agency, the ED has asked the PDP president to be present in its New Delhi office on March 15 at about 11:30 hours for questioning in connection with money laundering case.
As per the notice, Mehbooba has also been asked to be present along with required documents.
Meanwhile, the PDP chief while responding to the notice termed the Enforcement Directorate’s summon as Government of India’s ‘tactics to intimidate and browbeat political opponents to make them toe their line’.
“GOIs tactics to intimidate & browbeat political opponents to make them toe their line has become tediously predictable. They don’t want us to raise questions about its punitive actions & policies,” Mehbooba said in a tweet. “Such short-sighted scheming won’t work,” she further added.
Pertinently, a few months back PDP chief had accused ruling Modi-led Bhartiya Janata Party of using investigating agencies against her party cadres.
Another former chief minister and sitting Member Parliament from Srinagar constituency, Farooq Abdullah was twice summoned by the ED in connection with the same case.
