Jammu: Lashing out at her arch rival Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, People’s Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti blamed him for sponsoring political corruption in Jammu and Kashmir. If there had any law and order in the state, CM would have been in the jail.

Terming the mysterious death of National Conference worker Md Yousuf as a result of political corruption, the PDP leader said how the entire government machinery is gripped with rampant corruption.

Earlier, the cross voting by the Bharatiya Janata Party MLAs during the MLCs elections in last April also attests the menace. Astonishingly, the state corruption watchdogs take action against only peons and clerks.

She also equated the BJP with the Congress in helping Omar government indirectly.

Commenting on the Kashmir issue, the PDP supremo said the talks need to be held with separatists for solution of the dispute.
