Kulgam: In response to Home Minister Amit Shah's comment accusing PDP, NC, and Congress of staging fake encounters, People’s Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti asked the Home Minister to address people about the Shopian and Rajouri encounters. 
 
Talking to reporters during her visit to Kulgam District, Mehbooba challenged the BJP government to hold accountable those responsible for these incidents and any other fake encounters, asserting that if similar events occurred under her or Omar Abdullah’s administration, they too should reveal answers. 
 
She questioned why there is only talk and not action, given the government’s resources to identify and prosecute the culprits. 
 
Mehbooba said that the upcoming elections are not merely a contest between political parties but a pivotal moment for the voice of the Kashmiri people to be heard. 
 
The focus should be on electing representatives who can truly advocate for Kashmir’s interests in Parliament, she added.
