Former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti's daughter Iltija Mufti on Friday asked whether J&K was an integral part of #India or a colony.

J&K is not a colony. It is an integral part of #India. It is #Kashmir based parties who treated India as their colony by playing the separatist card.
Iltija Mufti also said that that #Article370 had nothing to do with development.

Only a person who lives outside the state can afford to be so ignorant. Iltija Mufti lives in Chennai and enjoys all the facilities which are not available here in #Kashmir.
#Article370 and 35A were responsible for J&K's backwardness while only benefiting a select few like the separatists, politicians of mainstream political parties of #Kashmir and their families.
She also compared #Jammu and #Kashmir to other states like #UttarPradesh and #Bihar and said that the state was faring much better than other states of the country.
"BJP rules states like UP and Bihar which have such bad socio-economic parameters. In comparison, J&K had a much better performance. How do you explain the lack of development in state like UP? In Bihar?" Iltija Mufti asked.
Half-truth. J&K received 10 percent of all Central grants given to states over the 2000-2016 period, despite having only one percent of the country’s population.

In contrast, UP makes up about 13% of the country’s population but received only 8.2% of Central grants in 2000-16.
That means J&K, with a population of 12.55 million according to the 2011 Census, received Rs.91,300 per person over the last sixteen years while Uttar Pradesh only received Rs.4,300 per person over the same period.
The amount of money that has been pumped in J&K should have made the state no.1 in every criterion but it is not. J&K was developing at the cost of tax-payers money. There are hardly any opportunities for common people of #Kashmir to set up their own business in the region.
Children of common #Kashmiris take Rs.500 from terrorists and separatists & does stone-pelting instead of doing a white-collar job. Youths of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh does not do these things in their states.
Uttar Pradesh does have some of the leading and prestigious universities of the country- #Allahabad University, #Aligarh Muslim University, #Lucknow University, #BHU, #Amity University, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Technical University, etc. What do we have in #Jammu and #Kashmir?
On women rights, Iltija Mufti said that women in #Kashmir are much more emancipated than women in the rest of the country.

Stop lying. Please.
