Mehbooba Mufti gets a notice from Anti Corruption Bureau over Jammu and Kashmir Bank appointment case, plays victim

Mufti essentially proceeded to call herself a mainstream leader and insinuate that this was an intimidatory tactic by the Modi government.

The Anti Corruption Bureau has sent a notice to the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti over the case of appointments in Jammu and Kashmir Bank.

Notice received by Mehbooba Mufti

The Anti Corruption Bureau notice to Mehbooba Mufti says that during the course of the investigation, it has emerged that few appointments in the Jammu and Kashmir Bank case were made on the recommendation of few ministers.

The notice asks Mehbooba Mufti to clarify whether such references had her endorsement, verbal or otherwise.

Mehbooba Mufti on her part proceeded to play the victim. She tweeted, “Not surprised to receive a letter from the Anti-Corruption Bureau. Concerted efforts are being made to browbeat mainstream leaders & thwart potential efforts for a collective response. I am too small an entity vis a vis the cause that unites us today. Such tactics won’t work”.

Mehbooba Mufti essentially proceeded to call herself a mainstream leader and insinuate that this was an intimidatory tactic by the Modi government. Also, in a rather petulent response, she said she was too small an entity vis a vis “the case” that unites all leaders today. She did not elaborate what that “cause” was.

In June this year, the J&K governor’s administration had sacked J&K Bank chairman Parvez Ahmad Negroo over wide-spread irregularities and corruption under his nose, following which the ACB sleuths conducted raids on the corporate office of the bank on TRC Road, Srinagar.
