In an open letter to Mufti, AAP leader Kumar Vishwas asked her to accept as "mistake" her "hailing" Guru as a martyr in the past, saying it would help dispel the misunderstandings over the BJP-PDP deal, he said.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also tweeted, "Mehbooba ji shud publicly clear her stand on this deal with BJP."
Mufti will stake claim to form the government at a meeting with Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra this afternoon.
"We have come to know from sources that you have changed your stand on traitor Afzal Guru. According to the terms of the alliance, you now consider him to be an anti-national and you regret your old stand. It is praiseworthy and we appreciate it," the letter said.
Alleging that action against Kashmiri students who had raised "anti-national" slogans at JNU was stalled due to Mufti, AAP hoped that following government formation in the state, she will arrest them or assist the Centre in doing so.
"You now consider Kashmir to be an integral part of India like patriots like us. We congratulate you in advance for forming government with BJP under these conditions. Please clarify to the media stating that hailing Afzal Guru as a martyr was your mistake and you consider him to be an anti-
national like us," it said.
