Srinagar, Sept 22: Ram Madhav, Bharatiya Janata Party general secretary, flew to Jammu and Kashmir from the North-East earlier this week to hold a meeting with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti. Sources and reports in the media say that the focus of this media was on the ‘Agenda of Alliance’, the lack of working on which has been blamed as the reason behind the unrest in Kashmir valley.
According to sources, almost no one knew about the meeting between the two top functionaries from the BJP and the PDP, the two parties commonly governing the state.
The sources also added that the Chief Minister had invited Ram Madhav for this meeting to discuss ‘some state issues’.
This meeting happened on Monday in the backdrop of the whole nation coming to terms with the ‘fidayeen’ attack on an Army base in Uri. Not much is known about the details of the meeting except that the centre of gravity was normalcy and restoration of peace.
It was underlined that New Delhi and Srinagar needed to speak and walk in unison regarding J&K and march on the path of implementing the Agenda of Alliance so that people could repose faith in the state’s governance.
With people feeling suffocated by the current situation, the sources said, it was agreed upon by both leaders that the Centre and the state would have to work hand in hand. Ram Madhav left Srinagar in the first flight on Tuesday morning.
