Mehbooba meets Modi, appeals to find ways to end bloodshed in the state

New Delhi: Three days after appealing to the country’s leadership to listen to the voices of pain from the state, Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti on Monday met the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and apprised him about the overall pressing situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

During the meeting, the Chief Minister stressed on finding ways and means to end the cycle of violence in the state by addressing the element of alienation among the youth. She said the people of the state have suffered immensely during the turmoil of past three decades and are looking up to the country’s political leadership to support them in getting out of this cycle of uncertainty and deaths.

Reiterating her demand for peaceful engagement with all stakeholders in this regard, the Chief Minister sought more frequent meetings at the highest levels between the two countries. She also favoured the idea that the two Army commands be in touch with each other to minimize the level of tension across the borders in the State which has affected lakhs of people living in these areas.

During the meeting, Mehbooba also pleaded for taking the cross LoC movement to next level by working on opening more historic routes across the LoC and movement of more people to build public confidence in peaceful engagements. She also pleaded to work for the opening of Sharda Peeth, the ancient seat of learning across LoC, and developing it like Nalanda and Takshila.

During the meeting, implementation of Agenda for Alliance, execution of PMDP and other mega developmental projects in the State also came up for discussion.

Recently Mehbooba had said that by winning the hearts and minds of the people of Kashmir, he can exhibit moral leadership of the region.
