Stating that peace in the subcontinent would lead through Kashmir, former J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday urged the Centre not to shy away from “engaging with the people of Jammu and Kashmir” and to carry forward the dialogue with Pakistan.
Addressing a party convention in south Kashmir’s Anantag district, she said New Delhi should “take a considerate view of rights and aspirations” of the people of J&K. Mufti said she is hopeful that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will grab the opportunity, provided by the SAARC summit, to carry forward the recent Indo-Pak peace gesture.
