Only PM Modi can take Kashmir out of sticky pot: Mehbooba

Jammu: The chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti has said that only Prime Minister Narendra Modi can find solution to the problems of the state.

The Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP-BJP coalition government has been fighting rising militancy and widespread violent protests in Kashmir since a year ago following the killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani. He went to Lahore and met Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.

"The previous Prime Minister also wanted to go to Pakistan but he couldn't summon up courage".

"Mufti sahib, who had seen a dream, shook hands with the Prime Minister of our country Narendra Modi, who has got the mandate of the people", she said.

Though none of the PDP Ministers was present in Jammu with Mehbooba, she herself reached out to the BJP leadership by praising Modi's visit to Lahore in December 2015.

She gave credit to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and her father, former Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, for starting the "chapter of peace" in Jammu and Kashmir in 2002 and alleged that the UPA regime at the centre and the then-state government did not carry forward the process.

The NC also said that the Chief Minister would do well to remember how late Mufti openly declared that Prime Minister Modi was a "Toofaan Ka Aadmi" and expressed similar "unfounded and unrealistic" optimism in his political will to resolve the Kashmir issue.
