Just days earlier, BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav had flown to srinagar and held talks with PDP Chief after what he had said that “both parties are positive” on continuing with the arrangement. Seems like Mehbooba Mufti is on a no go situation for the formation of government in the state.
Pakistan, which currently appears on the people’s mind in Delhi, is in a win – win situation.
Somebody from the PDP suggested that if Prime Minister Narendra Modi could take a visit to Lahore, why could he not do something equally magical for J&K?

Burhan Wani, who has become something of an icon, roams free in Tral, which is the hub of Kashmiri Sikhs, despite a reward of Rs 20 lakh on his head. The Srinagar-Jammu highway is said to be closed for the past four days not because of militants but stone-pelters. They hoping for the return to 1989.
