Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, addressing a gathering after inaugurating a flyover today, said that it’s only Prime Minister Narendra Modi who can resolve the unrest in Kashmir as he has a strong mandate. She further requested the PM to take the valley out of the difficult situation it is in right now. “If anyone can take us out of this quicksand, it is PM Modi. The nation will support whatever he decides,” Mufti said. Mufti also added that while her government is trying to improve the situation in Kashmir, there are some forces which do not want it.
Mufti also praised PM Modi’s decision to visit Lahore in December 2015, thereafter taking a dig at former PM Dr Manmohan Singh saying that he did not have the courage to visit Pakistan.
