Amidst political controversy over Masarat Alam’s release, another shocking revelation hit Modi government on Tuesday.
According to a letter revealed by a news website, Kashmiri separatist Masarat Alam’s release from prison was initiated under Governor’s rule in state.
Mufti Mohammad Sayeed government came to power on March 1, however, two letters indicate that the process of release was initiated on February 4.
This leads to a contradicted stand between BJP govt at Centre and PDP govt in state.
Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday stated in Parliament that the state government led by PDP had not consulted his government.
"Don't teach us patriotism, won't compromise on security. I share the opposition's aakrosh (anger)," he said in Parliament on Monday.
Meanwhile, if you check the details of the letter dated February 4, it can be seen that a permission seeking the release of Masarat Alam was sent by the state’s Home Secretary Suresh Kumar to the Jammu District Magistrate.
It was also mentioned that the order detaining the separatist under the Public Safety Act had become void.
Detailing regarding the any fresh ground for detaining Masarat Alam was also asked to which the district magistrate responded in the negative.
