Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today said the “emerging scenario” in the state can be addressed best by following the vision of late CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, asserting that her party’s agenda has always been dialogue and discourse and not “warmongering”.
“My party’s agenda has always been dialogue and discourse and not warmongering. The emerging scenario in Jammu & Kashmir and the subcontinent can be addressed best by executing and following the vision of late Mufti sahib,” she said. Addressing a meeting of party’s district and zonal presidents of Jammu province here yesterday, she said the situation of past few months in the state and the consequent acrimonious relations between India and Pakistan could be resolved by implementing the political philosophy of ex-J&K Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.
She reminded the delegates that since its inception in 1999, the party has always stood for dialogue, peace and harmonious relations between India and Pakistan.Wars have nowhere in the present world solved any problem, rather compounded them only, she added.
She said the problems being faced by the people of border areas in the state also underscore the need for pushing for a dialogue to resolve issues and maintain peaceful relations.Terming the formation of PDP as a boon for the people of the State, she said the objective of late Mufti Sahib was to provide J&K people a platform from where they could express themselves freely.
She said democracy in J&K couldn’t flourish earlier as people did not have such a platform which resulted in countless miseries to them.
Terming the party as a ‘sacred trust’ of the late leader, Mehbooba exhorted upon the functionaries to strengthen the party at grassroots to let the state’s people reap the benefits of this political platform.
