Responding to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti‘s statement on bringing peace to Kashmir, the Congress Party blaming her and the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, said the current coalition government has turned the state into a ‘war-zone’.
“Two people are responsible for Kashmir’s situation: Mehbooba Mufti and Prime Minister, Modi. From the time the BJP-PDP government was formed, Kashmir has turned into a war-zone,” Congress leader, Shakeel Ahmed said.
Yesterday, Mufti, while addressing the lawmakers in the state assembly, re-iterated her father, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s stance and said “neither guns nor the Army” can bring peace to a troubled Kashmir.
“Our soldiers are being martyred. Neither guns nor the Army can bring peace to troubled Kashmir,” she said.
Supporting this view, the Congress leader, Meem Afzal asserted that the state must address this issue immediately.
The Chief Minister’s comment comes in the wake of a recent terrorist attack in Anantnag that claimed the lives of six policemen.
The incident took place on Friday in Anantnag’s Thajiwara Achabal area when the policemen were on a routine round in their jeep.
During the attack some policemen also sustained serious bullet injuries and were rushed to a nearby hospital.
As per reports, Pakistan-based Lashker-e-Taiba claimed responsibility for the attack.
