Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said “if anyone could save the state from the ongoing turmoil it is Prime Minister Narendra Modi”.
Mehbooba, whose PDP rules J&K in a coalition government with the BJP said, “Humein daldal se koi agar bahar nikal sakta hai toh, woh PM Modi hain. Woh jo faisla karenge mulk support karega.” (If someone can extricate us [Kashmir] from this muck, it is Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The nation will support whatever decision he takes.)
Mehbooba was speaking at a function in Jammu.
