Modi only hope, says Mehbooba

Narendra Modi Kashmir violence Jammu and Kashmir N.N. Vohra Rajnath Singh A.K. Daulat

Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said that PM Narendra Modi is Kashmir's only hope to resolve the dispute once and for all.

"The people at the helm of affairs in the state, including the chief minister, other ministers (deputy CM), heads of state departments, vice-chairman of Development Authorities, commissioners of corporations etc need to introspect", BJP state spokesperson Prof Virender Gupta said here. "The nation will support whatever he decide", a news report quoted Mehbooba as saying. "Whatever decision he takes, the country will support him". "PM Modi Lahore gaye yeh taqat ki nishani hai".

As for Mehbooba reaching out to the PM, the differences between the BJP and PDP remain despite a high-level meeting between her and Modi in New Delhi last month. Recalling the "path breaking initiatives" of the three-year Mufti government beginning in 2002, she said India and Pakistan signed historical ceasefire agreement along their borders and started the cross-LoC bus and truck services.

The Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP-BJP coalition government has been fighting rising militancy and widespread violent protests in Kashmir since past year following the killing of Hizbul commander Burhan Wani. The last visit to Pakistan by an Indian prime minister was in 2004 by Atal Bihari Vajpayee.


The CM was addressing a gathering after inaugurating a flyover here. She said the city has a good treasure of forts and monuments which have the potential of attracting heritage lovers to the city and added her Government is working towards that.

He also informed the prime minister about various developmental works being done in Jammu and Kashmir, they said. "He wanted to see his home there", she said, with naming Manmohan. "It was not an ordinary feat", she said in an apparent hint to push for talks.

"The chief minister said militancy declined during that period and there was peace on the borders".

"Unfortunately Mufti Sahib left us and Vajpayee government is also not there and the situation is back to square one. Subsequently, lava (among Kashmiri youth) kept simmering since 2008 and today we are facing its ramifications", she said.
