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

Jammu Kashmir N N Vohra Narendra Modi Rajnath Singh

She said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi showed his strength by visiting Pakistan amid tension between the two countries a year ago.

The chief minister said that the "militancy" declined during that period and there was peace on the Line of Control. He has the mandate. "Whatever decision he takes, India will support him", she said.

The Congress leader also sought to know what assurances NSA Ajit Doval had received from his Pakistan counterpart during their December 2015 meeting in Bangkok which made Modi visit Lahore in the same month later. "PM Modi Lahore gaye, yeh taqat ki nishani hai", Mehbooba said. "Now after 2008, for the first time, people have started expressing passion in the matter", CM said.

She now totally banks on PM Modi's support for regaining her support base in the Valley. "It was an excuse as he too actually wanted to have a solution to this issue but couldn't do it as he lacked the strength". If our Prime Minister Narendra Modi went to Paksitan, it is sign of his strength, of his moral strength.

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. "It is my earnest appeal", she said. "But unfortunately my father was out of the government and Vajpayeeji left, and the process came to grinding halt", she said. Thereafter, successive governments in J&K and Centre, be it UPA in Delhi or in J&K, thought that everything was fine and there was no need to do anything. "This lava has now spread to the streets and we are forced to face this situation", she said.




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

Mehbooba's party PDP has virtually lost its support base in south Kashmir after over five months of unrest past year. The operation was launched with the aim of exerting pressure on militants and force them to move out of their comfort zone.

Today, a policeman and three civilians were killed when militants attacked a police team in Kulgam in south Kashmir. The last visit to Pakistan by an Indian prime minister was in 2004 by Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

Earlier, Vohra had met Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday and apprised him about the ground situation of Kashmir.
