Only Narendra Modi can find a solution for Kashmir, says Mehbooba Mufti

She said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had the mandate of the nation to address the 70-year-old Kashmir issue. "I am saying it again and I may be criticised for it but if there is someone, who could find solution to the problem of Jammu and Kashmir, it is Shri Narendra Modi ji and none else", she told a gathering after inaugurating a flyover in Jammu.

She said that PM Modi showed his strength by visiting Pakistan amid tensions between the two countries, the report added.

Jammu and Kashmir CM Mehbooba Mufti said "The prime minister has an intention of holding talks after the situation becomes normal". "It is the sign of strength and courage and not the sign of weakness", she said. "PM Modi Lahore gaye yeh taqat ki nishani hai". Recalling the "path breaking initiatives" of the three-year Mufti government beginning in 2002, she said India and Pakistan signed historical ceasefire agreement along their borders and started the cross-LoC bus and truck services.

Indirectly referring to ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Mehbooba said the former PM also wished to visit Pakistan but did not dare to do so. He wanted to see his home there. He could have tried to end the confrontation between the two countries, and bring J&K out of this unfortunate situation. "It is my earnest appeal", she said.

Slew of documents that have been accessed cite that the nexus between Pakistan and the separatist leaders is responsible for instigating the youth to conduct violent acts in the conflict-ridden state of Jammu and Kashmir. "He was successful to a large extent in shortest of period", she Mufti said.

He said that Mufti's declaration of Modi being Kashmir's "only hope" was ironic and ridiculous in the backdrop of the Advocate General of India's statement in the Supreme Court ruling out any possibility of talks with various stakeholders in Kashmir including the separatists.

According to her, Vajpayee and her father tried to resolve the Kashmir but unfortunately no efforts were made by UPA-I and UPA -II governments in centre.

She alleged that the former Indian government and the state government did not carry forward the process thinking "everything is peaceful and there is no need to do anything further".
