The former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti, whose account is handled by her daughter, took to Twitter on Thursday and highlighted the unconstitutionality in connection with the detention of the elected leaders. This comes as the leaders are still in detention after six months of the abrogation of Article 370. Iltija Mufti, the daughter of ex-CM Mehbooba also claimed that the BJP leaders are spared when they make communal comments, whereas, three former CMs continue to be in detention in India's only Muslim majority state. Adding further, she mocked HM Shah's statement and said 'Aap chronology samjhiye'.

Connectivity in J&K

The Principal Secretary of Planning and Development, Jammu and Kashmir, Rohit Kansal, on January 18 briefed the media about the internet and telecom connectivity in the Union Territory of J&K. He made a few major announcements stating that the voice and SMS facilities on prepaid services will be functional throughout the UT. However, the access to internet services will still be limited as the people of J&K will only be able to access 2G data on postpaid sim cards within the 10 districts of Jammu division and two districts of Kashmir division.

Mobile internet connectivity shall, however, remain suspended in Srinagar, Budgam, Ganderbal, Baramulla, Anantnag, Kulgam, Shopian and Pulwama.
