altJehlum Post News Network/Srinagar / Apr 29, 2015/National Conference leader Omar Abdullah Wednesday  criticised ruling PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on the issue of invoking of Public Safety Act (PSA) on Hurriyat Conference leader Masarat Alam. "Where is Mehbooba Mufti? The person I'm watching on @HeadlinesToday is certainly not the person I knew for the last six years," Omar wrote on twitter.Com. "Suddenly there are 'red lines' that are being drawn in the sand. How people change in office (!)"

Omar said on the microblogging site.The PDP president, in an interview to a private TV news channel aired last night, defended the state government's decision to arrest Alam and book him under the controversial PSA, saying that actions supporting Lashker-e-Taiba terror group Chief Hafeez Saeed would have vitiated the atmosphere in Jammu and Kashmir. Mehbooba, who had termed PSA as a "black spot" on democracy earlier as an opposition leader, made it clear that the decision was taken keeping in mind the forthcoming tourism season. "Kashmir is on the road of economic recovery. People like Masarat Alam are danger to that recovery. Masarat Alam crossed the red line," she said. Agency

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
