US, China should handle their own affairs: Mehbooba Mufti on Kashmir issue

Syed Salahuddin

Hitting out at Gandhi, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said many problems of Jammu and Kashmir are the legacy of the Congress and its role in creating complications in the state is "too well known".

Earlier, the USA had said that instead of waiting until "something happens", it would try and "find its place in efforts to de-escalate strains between Pakistan and India".

Farooq Abdullah had on Friday said, "For how long are you going to wait? (Mai kaafi samay se keh raha hoon ki Narendra Modi ji aur NDA ki policies ne Jammu Kashmir ko jala diya hai)", Rahul told reporters. "Use your friends. Use them for dialogue to resolve the issue". "We, India and Pakistan, have to talk even after war". Sometimes, you have to catch the bull by its horns. The PDP leader said that the "situation in Kashmir will be same as Syria and Afghanistan if America starts intervening". They (Pakistan) have atom bomb, so have you.

The commissioner said the situation in the district was being assessed and more schools are likely to be shut till the situation in the border area comes under control, adding that evacuation plans were also being prepared by the administration. "If you want to resolve Kashmir issue there is no other way", Peoples Democratic Party's Sartaj Madni was quoted by a news gathering agency as having said.

In an interaction with a visiting Press Council of India (PCI) team here, Mufti alleged, "A section of the country's media has been indulging in debates, discussions and reportage about the state and its people, most of which is far from reality. If you want to have talks, then keep America, Turkistan, and English-tan out", she said.

Recently in one of its statements, the USA described it as "Indian administered Jammu and Kashmir" and this week it said the "Indian State of Jammu and Kashmir". "His flip-flops on Kashmir reek of hypocrisy", Mr Rao said in remarks that were later echoed by Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh.

Farooq Abdullah says dialogue is the only solution.
