PDP chief and former Chief Minister of J&K, Mehbooba Mufti on Friday told reporters that "if there is any attempt to break PDP by Delhi, then their consequences would be very dangerous, like in 1987".

Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti added "Agar Dilli ne 1987 ki tarah yahan ki awam ke vote pe daaka dala, agar iss kism ki tod fod ki koshish ki,jis tarah ek Salahuddin ek Yasin Malik ne janm liya...agar Dilliwalon ne PDP ko todne ki koshish ki uski nataish bahut zyada khatarnaak hogi (If Delhi, tries to despoil the voting rights of people like 1987, if it tries to create divisions & interfere like that then I think just like a Salahuddin and a Yasin Malik were born in 1987...if it tries to break PDP like that then outcomes will be dangerous)", she is seen saying in the video.

The former CM was referrring to the alleged rigged elections of 1987, where it ws alleged that despite the Muslim United Front (MUF) being the popular party, the elections were rigged in favour of the National Conference (NC). This was a major event, which many believe was one of the primary reasons for the onset of armed insurgency in Kashmir.

"There are problems in houses they are sorted out, but if in any way Delhi tried to interfere with it (PDP's internal matters), then to my understanding, like in 1987, like the the votes of the people here were despoiled, like MUF was crushed here, if there is a similar attempt by Delhi to break PDP, then its conseqences would be very dangerous." , Mehbooba told reporters.

Mehbooba was talking to reporters at the Martyrs' Graveyard at Naqshband Sahib after paying tributes to those killed in firing by soldiers of Dogra Maharaja Hari Singh on this day in 1931 during protests against his autocratic rule. The day is celebrated as Martyrs' Day in the state.

This was her first public appearance in the state after she resigned as chief minister.

After the government fell, several PDP legislators raised a banner of revolt against Mehbooba's leadership and accused her of nepotism and favouritism during her tenure as chief minister. 

Jammu and Kashmir was placed under governor's rule on June 20, after BJP pulled out of the alliance with PDP.
