Only PM Modi can resolve Kashmir problem: Mehbooba


"The prime minister of our country had been given a very strong mandate by the people".

She said only PM Modi can help people of Jammu and Kashmir in these troubling circumstances and take them out of morass.

Speaking at the inauguration of a much-awaited flyover in Jammu, the chief minister said, "If anyone can take us out of this quagmire then it is Prime Minister Narendra Modi".

Mufti reiterated that it were her later father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and the then Prime Minister and BJP stalwart Atal Bihari Vajpayee who successfully worked towards improving relations with Pakistan but these were again unhinged as a result of lack of initiatives by the UPA governments. Hailing the Indian prime minister's decision to visit Lahore on December 25, 2015, she said that it was a sign of strength not weakness.

"The PM Modi took the decision and visited Pakistan and met his counterpart. This is not a sign of weakness but an indication of strength and power", she told the gathering.

"A Prime Minister had also desired to go to Pakistan for over 10 years to see his home".


Within three years, she said, they were "successful" to a great extent - "India and Pakistan began talks on re-opening LoC routes for trade and travel, there was a drop in incidents of militant violence and peace prevailed on the borders".

"Unfortunately Mufti Sahib left us and Vajpayee government is also not there and the situation is back to square one".

He said that Mufti's declaration of Modi being Kashmir's "only hope" was ironic and ridiculous in the backdrop of the Advocate General of India's statement in the Supreme Court ruling out any possibility of talks with various stakeholders in Kashmir including the separatists. "It is my earnest appeal", she said.

The remarks come amid ongoing violence in Jammu and Kashmir with a spate of militant attacks and frequent clashes between civilians and security forces. "It was not an ordinary feat", she said in an apparent hint to push for talks. "Now after 2008, for the first time, people have started expressing passion in the matter", CM said.

Mehbooba said the situation in Kashmir is not good and blamed the previous Congress-led UPA government in the centre for the prevailing anger and alienation among people in Kashmir.
