Highlights of Mehbooba Mufti in Aap Ki Adalat :

11:14 pm: I never indulged in corruption either as an MLA and or as Chief Minister of the state: Mehbooba

11:08 pm: I came into politics because the constituency was not getting a candidate, it was completely situational

11:07 pm: I and Mufti sahab used to work as a team with an understanding. I suffered an emotional trauma after the demise of Mufti sahab

11:06 pm: We need to rise to analyse the situation in Jammu and Kashmir like Vajpayee ji. This is the only way to restore peace

11:05 pm: We need to work towards uplifting the people of Jammu and Kashmir and make efforts to protect them

11:00 pm: It was unfortunate how the Kathua rape and murder case was politicised and used to create differences in the society

10:58 pm: I had issued directions to not dislocate the Gujjars. This was not done for political gains: Mehbooba

10:57 pm: The investigation in Kathua rape and murder case was conducted in a well-structured manner: Mehbooba

10:56 pm: I have talked the least about the rape and murder case of 8-year-old in Kathua, I understand the pain as I have two daughters: Mehbooba

10:55 pm: Everything is done for political gains, humanity is also something: Mehbooba

10:54 pm: I did everything I could have, for the welfare of Jammu and Kashmir: Mehbooba

10:53 pm: Most of the ministers and MLAs of BJP were from Jammu, so there was no question of any discrimination: Mehbooba

10:52 pm: We had mentioned our agendas in the agenda of alliance. Our plans were not hidden from the BJP: Mehbooba

10:51 pm: Joining hands with Modi ji was a historical decision and I believe that there are a very few people who can understand the ideologies of Mufti sahab: Mehbooba

10:50 pm: People who come to visit Jammu and Kashmir meet me and say that the state is much different from what they had known: Mehbooba

10:49 pm: Media has become the face of Jammu and Kashmir, whereas the reality is far different: Mehbooba

10:48 pm: Militants and separatists are guilty, but their children are not. Punishing Geelani sahab's family member is not justified: Mehbooba

10:47 pm: Bombing Pakistan will not resolve the problems that the valley is facing: Mehbooba

10:46 pm: I love this country a lot and this is why I raise objections to actions that are giving way to more killings in the state: Mehbooba

10:45 pm: People target Modi ji for his Pakistan visit. I say that he made efforts, but it would not work byjust one visit: Mehbooba

10:44 pm: We cannot leave everything to the police and the security forces: Mehbooba

10:43 pm: There is Governor rule in the state today and no one has tied the hands of police today. Everything should have been normal in the Valley under these conditions: Mehbooba

10:42 pm: I am only finding ways to restore peace in the Valley: Mehbooba

10:41 pm: The militants always come from across the border, no militant comes from within the country: Mehbooba

10:39 pm: The family members of the militants should be treated as the civilians of Jammu and Kashmir: Mehbooba

10:38 pm: Our security forces deal with the militants, but I am against the phenomenon of troubling the families of terrorists. They are not at fault: Mehbooba

10:37 pm: PDP has been constituted by ordinary people. We do not support any militants: Mehbooba

10:36 pm: We cannot arrest a person just because his name is associated to an organisation. The crimes against a person need to be proved for arrest: Mehbooba

10:35 pm: I had taken back the cases of stone pelters because most of those were first time offenders and were school children, who are the future of the country: Mehbooba

10:34 pm: The people of Jammu and Kashmir had high expectations from PDP: Mehbooba

10:32 pm: I have never been in favour of firings. The families of militants should not be troubled, it is not their fault if a member of their family has chosen to become a terrorist: Mehbooba

10:30 pm: An elected government always needs to think and act in favour of the local people: Mehbooba

10:28 pm: We need to persuade the external forces not to indulge into acts of violence in the state: Mehbooba

10:24 pm: We can say a lot of things while making speeches, but we need to talk in practical terms. I believe that war cannot be considered an option today: Mehbooba

10:23 pm:The idea of India is incomplete without the idea of Kashmir: Mehbooba

10:22 pm: Innocent civilians and Army jawans are being killed in Jammu and Kashmir. We all mourn it for two days and then forget about it: Mehbooba

10:21 pm: I had known journalist ShujaatBukhari. He had come to meet me: Mehbooba

10:19 pm: How can we stop the killings in the Valley without talking to Pakistan?: Mehbooba

10:18 pm: I once asked Vajpayee ji "why don't you talk to Pakistan?". He replied "what should we talk? All they want is Kashmir.": Mehbooba

10:16 pm: Examples of brotherhood and unity are still alive in Jammu and Kashmir: Mehbooba

10:14 pm: Mufti sahab always wanted to take forward the ideology of Vajpayee ji and this is why he joined hands with Modi ji: Mehbooba

10:10 pm: The time, when Mufti saheb was J&K CM and Vajpayee jee was PM, was a golden era. It was a time when the Central and the state govts coordinated well for bringing peace to the state

10:07 pm: Ceasefire was done in favour of the civilians, in an attempt to put a break on the blood-shelling in the Valley. I wanted the ceasefire to continue even after Ramzaan: Mehbooba

Meanwhile, Mehbooba Mufti's party PDP is facing rebellion which is gaining momentum with each passing day. Till now, six legislators of the party- five MLAs and one MLC- have publicly spoken against Mehbooba. They have alleged that the former chief minister didn’t have time to meet them.

On Friday, PDP MLC Yasir Reshi came out in support of Pattan MLA and former minister Imran Ansari and his MLA uncle from Zadibal, Abid Ansari, who have accused PDP president Mehbooba Mufti of nepotism and incompetence during her tenure as chief minister of the coalition government with the BJP. 

Tangmarg MLA Abbas Wani, Noorabad MLA Abdul Majid Paddar and Baramulla MLA Javaid Beigh have also thrown their weight behind the Ansaris.
