Mehbooba’s demand goes to deaf ears.
Srinagar: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s demand to restart talks with separatists for normalcy to return in the Valley have gone to deaf ears as Centre appears to be in no mood for discussion with Hurriyat leaders. Mehbooba Mufti who met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh yesterday in New Delhi have conveyed and apprised the deteriorating situation in valley and wished to take Hurriat conference on board. However, according to sources the government is not in favor of talks with pro-Pakistan lobby in the Valley despite such demands from various quarters.
The government believes that talks with separatists would yield no result as all such attempts have failed in the past.
Pointing to the need to hold talks with all stakeholders, Mehbooba Mufti said that talks with the separatist Hurriyat (Conference) had taken place during the tenure of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. She said talks were the only way forward.
Though Government of India has decided to go ahead after the top terror commanders.as situation in the Valley remains tense and incidents of stone pelting continues unabated.
According to the sources,agencies have been directed to break the backbone of terror infrastructure in Jammu and Kashmir.
Instead of acting on Mehbooba”s demands Government has given ultimatum of three months to restore normalcy,which seems dead impossible after witnessing the brewing anger among the people.
“This is ripe time for Mehbooba Mufti to Quit before it is too late,nothing will come out from going to and fro,She should go back to people and try to regain trust”Said Wasim Raja a Businessman.
With the each passing day clamour for the PDP to come out from Coalition with BJP is growing even the senior leader Muzaffar Hussain who represents the party in Parliament has said that Mehbooba should go back to the people to win their trust.
