Reacting to BJP’s demand that the PDP president be arrested for allegedly instigating people to defy a ban of civilian traffic movement on Kashmir-Jammu national highway, Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said ‘such tactics and threats won’t scare her as she is not made of a wood that burns easily’.

“BJP wants me arrested for instigating Kashmiris to defy a callous ban that prohibits them from using their own roads. But such tactics & threats won’t scare me. They forget I am not made of a wood that burns easily,” Mehbooba, who is the former chief minister of J&K, wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.

“An FIR should be registered against Mehbooba Mufti for statements to instigate the public to defy vehicular ban on highway on Wednesdays and Sundays,” BJP’s J&K spokesperson Sunil Sethi said.

“We demand the arrest of Mehbooba Mufti for instigating public to break law,” he added.
