Pray for Farooq’s long life; free Omar and Mehbooba too: Mamata Banerjee
West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee is one of the
first major leaders welcoming the revoking of PSA against National Conference patron
A government order announced the scrapping of the PSA on
Friday even as a barrage of media personnel is currently waiting outside Farooq’s
home-turned-into-sub-jail in Srinagar to see him out in open.
“I pray for the good health and long life of J&K’s
former CM & veteran leader Farooq Abdullah Ji. Let the other two former CMs @OmarAbdullah
& @MehboobaMufti be freed as well from the unjust PSA and be allowed to
join the democratic process immediately,” Mamata tweeted.
Farooq, his son Omar, and PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti–all former
J&K CMs–were detained in the backdrop of the abrogation of article 370 and
bifurcation of J&K in August last year
