Chidambaram opposes detention of Mehbooba under PSA

 New Delhi, August 01:  Senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram on Saturday hit out at BJP led Central government over the detention of former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti under the Public Safety Act (PSA). He said that extension of detention of Mehbooba Mufti was misuse of law. It was a violation of the constitutional rights of citizens. He appealed to everyone to raise their voices for the release of Mehbooba.


In a tweet, Chidambaram said, “The extension of Mehbooba Mufti's detention under PSA is an abuse of law and an attack on the constitutional rights of citizens.” He asked how the 61-year-old former chief minister, who is protected by security guards round the clock, is a threat to public safety.”



 Describing the reason for the detention of the former CM as ridiculous, he said that action was taken against the color of the party's flag, which was wrong.


The Congress leader questioned the Center, “Why one should not speak against the abrogation of Article 370? Isn't this part of the right to free speech?”


He further said, “I am one of the lawyers appearing in a case in the Supreme Court challenging the abrogation of Article 370. If I speak against Article 370 - as I should - is it a threat to public safety?” Chidambaram said that there was a need to collectively raise voice and demand the release of Mehbooba Mufti.
