Govt's policy on J&K a 'disaster', says Anand Sharma

J&K governor meets PM Narendra Modi discusses security situation in Valley

"Parents should be careful about the future (of their wards)", he said, adding, "We need to see what education these institutions are imparting to our children". And that was the reason he went to Lahore in an hour and met the prime minister there. The BJP state unit and the RSS have been questioning her ways of checking escalating violence in the Valley.

Taking a dig at former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, she said, "Pehle wale PM bhi Pak jana chahte, par zurrat nahi ki".

Addressing a gathering after inaugurating a flyover in Gandhi Nagar, Mufti, while referring to the recent turmoil in the state, said, "Mein aaj bhi yeh kehti hoon". He, too, probably wanted to resolve issues and remove confrontation with Pakistan so as to bail the state out of unrest and violence. It was the first visit by the Indian Prime Minister in a decade.

"The UPA government did not continue the reconciliation policy started by previous NDA government led by Atal Bihari Vajapayee in Jammu and Kashmir during her father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed's rule from 2002-2005", Mehbooba said.

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.

She said, any decision by Prime Minister regarding Kashmir would be acceptable to the whole nation.

Complimenting the people of Jammu for maintaining communal harmony and brotherhood despite "provocation", the chief minister said nobody will be allowed to disturb the peaceful atmosphere, and mischief-mongers will be dealt with sternly.

He said the people of the state had pinned their hopes on the PDP-BJP government which had promised to make the cities of Jammu and Srinagar the model cities of the country.

'Kashmir situation not good, it affects Jammu also.' Jammu has many tourist destinations and trying to develop them, said, Mufti on Congress leader GS Charak's statement that no developmental work done in Jammu. "It was not an ordinary feat", she said in an apparent hint to push for talks.

The NC also said that the Chief Minister would do well to remember how late Mufti openly declared that Prime Minister Modi was a "Toofaan Ka Aadmi" and expressed similar "unfounded and unrealistic" optimism in his political will to resolve the Kashmir issue.
