A DAY after CM Mehbooba Mufti spoke about initiating measures to ensure reopening of schools in the Valley, state’s former CM Farooq Abdullah said that “it is better (if) she steps down’’.
“I am sorry that this lady is not effectively running the state…she has taken no measures…Whether her ministers shout from the sky, the situation in the Valley is bad. Extremely bad,’’ he said.

In a reference to the NDA government at the Centre, Farooq said: “I hope that in Delhi, they will wake up and start thinking of how we get back to the normal. This is very important because schools are being burnt,” he said, adding that there is a “definite scheme’’ under which this was being done.
Claiming that everyday the CM says that in one week she will declare the names of people behind the burning of schools, the National Conference leader asked: “Where are those names? We would like to know who is burning these schools and who is going to construct them?’’
On Monday, Mehbooba had talked about measures taken by her government in the cases of school burnings , including apprehension of some people allegedly involved in the incidents.
