Srinagar, Jan 31: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti lamented the “politicizing” of the phone conversation between Pakistan foreign minister and a top Hurriyat leader, calling the row as the lowest unsuccessful point in foreign policy of India.
“Terming a phone call between Pakistani FM & Mirwaiz Umar Farooq sahab as anti-India has reduced ties to an unbelievable nadir,” Mehbooba tweeted.
In a series of tweets, Mehbooba said it was during the NDA rule under former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee that meetings between Hurriyat leadership and Pakistani officials were facilitated besides allowing separatist to visit Pakistan.
“Ironically it was NDA under Vajpayee ji that facilitated meetings between Hurriyat leaders & Pakistani dignitaries plus allowing them to visit Pakistan to hold talks with the establishment including the then President General Musharraf,” she said.
She added: “A foreign policy dictated by the compulsions of electoral politics is shockingly pathetic.”
