Delhi Government issues Notice to Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti, Here’s Why?


In yet another embarrassment for the “ousted” Peoples Democratic Party, former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has been asked to evict her official residence in New Delhi.

Delhi government on Tuesday issued a notice to former Chief Minister, Jammu, and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti asked her to vacate the official residence of Delhi with a stipulated time period of one week.

Sources said that the notice came today asking her to vacate her official residence in a week

Sources said a formal evacuation notice was served to Mehbooba Mufti this morning with a notice of one week to take away her personal belongings from the villa.

5 Akbar Road in the plush capital happens to be the official residence of the chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir.

Sources said in the wake of the notice served to her, the PDP President has called a meeting of her close aides to decide the future course of action.

Interestingly on June 19, when the right-wing party pulled out of the alliance in the state, the PDP had remained silent on BJP.

Earlier Mehbooba sent her resignation to Governor N N Vohra after BJP pulled out their alliance with the ruling PDP in Jammu and Kashmir.

The BJP has repeatedly cited discrimination against Jammu and Ladakh regions and “deteriorating situation” in the state as reasons for withdrawing support to Mufti-led PDP-BJP coalition government.
