‘Only he can pull Kashmir out from the pit’
Srinagar: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said that Narendra Modi is the only leader who can pull Kashmir out of the pit as he enjoys a historic mandate.
Mehbooba, while after inaugurating a flyover in Jammu also added that Modi’s surprize visit to Lahore shows how powerful he is. “If anyone can pull Kashmir out of the Daldal (Marsh pit), it’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” she said.
Referring to how powerful he is and what other wanted to do but couldn’t, Mehbooba said, “Previous Prime Minister also wanted to visit Pakistan. He couldn’t dare. PM Modi went to Lahore. Yeh Taqat ki nishani hai (This is a sign of power),” she said.
Mehbooba also recalled that former chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee had bettered the troubled relation between India and Pakistan with their initiatives.
She said, however, the previous government sat on those initiatives and the process got disturbed.
