New Delhi: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the backdrop of Kashmir reeling under curfew and protests for the last 50 days following the encounter of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.
Taking a dig at Pakistan, Mufti said that Pakistan has been openly trying to provoke violence and fuel disruption in the Valley. Pakistan, instead of trying to improve the situation prevailing in Kashmir, is trying to worsen it even more, the J&K CM further added.
Mehbooba Mufti further expressed her anger over Pakistan wasting chances to resolve the issues with India.
Mufti showed support towards PM Modi and said that the prime minister is himself very concerned about the situation in Kashmir. Not just this, highlighting PM Modi’s initiative of extending hand of friendship towards Pakistan, Mufti said that now it’s up to Pakistan to respond.
Remembering her father, Mohammad Mufti Sayeed’s statement, Mehbooba Mufti reiterated that the situation of J&K will not change ever if it does not change during the regime of Modi, who enjoys 2/3rd majority.
While addressing the media, Mufti urged the media as well to help her in resolving the current crisis existing in Jammu and Kashmir.
