Mehbooba dodges the Kashmir Unrest talk at All Party Meet

At all-party delegation meeting, Mehbooba Mufti government stays away from Kashmir unrest issue: The ruling PDP representatives spoke about release of funds by the Centre, review of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act and pump action shotguns instead.

Though the Home Minister Rajnath Singh-led delegation said that “there is an urgent need to initiate a result-oriented dialogue to solve the issue”, the ruling Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party representatives spoke only about development and other issues such as release of funds by the Centre, review of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act and banning of pump action shotguns that have left thousands in the region with serious injuries.

Before the state’s finance minister, Haseeb Drabu, made the presentation, Mufti said false propaganda was being created around the ongoing crisis in the region. She said she believes that the situation would come under control soon.

After the first meeting, Mufti wrote on Facebook, “Met the ‘All Party Delegation’ at S.K.I.C.C today and pitched for unconditional talks with all stakeholders… Also committed to help initiate a sustained and meaningful dialogue with all internal stakeholders, which will include all political groups irrespective of their ideological views and predilections. This dialogue seeks to build a broad-based consensus on resolution of all outstanding issues of J&K.”
