Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday during her visit to Ganderbal district said that the central government was exploiting the natural resources in Jammu and Kashmir since abrogation of article 370 and was also trying to weaken the distinct identity of different states within the union of India.
Talking to voice of valley on the side lines of condolences to the family of Qazi Muhammad Afzal a former minister of PDP and its senior leader on the sad demise of his wife, she said that BJP government at the centre has been attacking the very idea of India which is the union of states.
