Only Prime Minister Narendra Modi can resolve the problems plaguing Kashmir, chief minister Mehbooba Mufti said on Saturday as her government struggled to keep a lid on increasing violence and bitterness in the Valley.
Amid speculations of the Centre dismissing her administration and imposing Governor’s Rule in the state, Mehbooba threw her weight behind Modi and praised the PM for his surprise Christmas visit to Lahore two years ago.
“The prime minister of our country had been given a very strong mandate by the people. 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.
“If Jammu and Kashmir has to be bailed out of this quagmire of violence and unrest, it is only the PM Modi ji who can help.”
