If anyone can resolve Kashmir issue, it is Modi: Mehbooba

Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Saturday said only Prime Minister Narendra Modi can resolve the Kashmir problem as he has a strong mandate and appealed to him to pull the valley out of morass.

"If anyone can take us out of the sticky spot, it is Prime Minister Modi. The nation will support whatever he decides", she said.

CM Mufti said she could be criticised by the people for what she is saying but she has a firm belief that PM Modi can only help in improving the deteriorating situation in the state.

The meeting with PM Modi and HM Rajnath Singh comes in the wake of two Indian soldiers being mutilated by Pakistani forces in the Poonch sector and also the killing of five cops and two bank officials by terrorists in the Kulgam district of the state.

Other reports suggested that Mehbooba had pleaded to talk to all stakeholders, including pro-freedom group, which was denied by the centre, terming that it will indicate weakness.

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. Aur yehi wajah hai ki woh ek gantey ke andar Pakistan chaley gaye, wahan ke prime minister se mile.

Mehbooba said how Modi's predecessor Manmohan Singh, who was PM for 10 years, also may have had a desire to see his birth home in Pakistan. She pointed out that militancy in Kashmir had declined during that period and there was peace on the border. The spokesman said, "Either Mehbooba Mufti is suffering from amnesia or she is willing to oversee the humiliation meted out to her late father by the same Prime Minister". "Now after 2008, for the first time, people have started expressing passion in the matter", CM said.

"Whosoever takes law in own hands would be dealt with appropriately", she said and cautioned people against "nefarious designs" of some "negative elements" who wanted to derail the developmental process in Jammu region by creating an atmosphere of hate.

"He (the former PM) also would have tried to end the confrontation between the two countries and bring J&K out of this unfortunate situation, but he had no courage to do that", she said.

To a question, the BJP leader said that the National Democratic Alliance government is more success full than the United Progressive Alliance government in tackling the activities of Maoists.
