SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Friday warned the Centre of "dangerous outcomes" of breaking the functioning of the People's Democratic Party (PDP).

"If Delhi tries to dismiss the voting rights of people like 1987, and if it tries to create divisions and interfere like that, then I think just like a Salahuddin and a Yasin Malik were born in 1987, there will be dangerous consequences (Agar Dilli ne 1987 ki tarah yahan ki awam ke vote pe daaka dala, agar iss kism ki tod fod ki koshish ki,jis tarah ek Salahuddin ek Yasin Malik ne janm liya...agar Dilliwalon ne PDP ko todne ki koshish ki uski nataish bahut zyada khatarnaak hogi)" she told reporters here, on the sidelines of a state event organised to commemorate Martyr's Day here.

Meanwhile, National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah suggested that the state assembly be dissolved, following the breakup of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-PDP alliance. "We cannot distribute the Constituency Development Fund (CDF). We cannot work then what is the point of salary? Give us our CDF. Dissolve assembly, stop horse trading. We will talk about elections after you dissolve the assembly, stop the horse trading, civilian killings," he said.

Last month, the BJP pulled out from its alliance with the PDP in Jammu and Kashmir, following which Mufti stepped down as chief minister. Thereafter, governor's rule was imposed in the state. On a related note, people across Jammu and Kashmir are observing the anniversary of the 22 men who were martyred in Kashmir, while protesting against the autocratic rule of the Dogra king, also known as Martyr's day.

On July 13, 1931, the Dogra regime ordered indiscriminate firing on thousands of peaceful protestors outside Srinagar's Central Jail, after which 22 Kashmiris were martyred on the orders of Maharaja Hari Singh.
