PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti’s daughter Iltija Mufti on Monday said the government was busy with the visit of U.S. President Donald Trump to India, while Delhi was “burning” and eight million Kashmiris were deprived of their fundamental rights. She said the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi was remembered only during visits by foreign dignitaries to the Sabarmati Ashram.
