Srinagar, Feb 28: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presiden, Mehbooba Mufti said on Sunday that her party would not assume the reins of power in Jammu and Kashmir unless it is certain that doing so would bring peace and prosperity to the common man.
“It would never be my aim to assume the reins of power in the state so that I and my ministers have sirens, flags and cavalcades of pomp and show.
“If I choose to assume power, it would have to be for peace. It would have to be for friendly relations between India and Pakistan which is essential for peace in Jammu and Kashmir.
Noting that “these things are presently threatened”, she noted: “Youth are getting disgruntled with the situation and some of them are taking to the gun. This is a serious development.”
