Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Friday said that the arrest of Hurriyat leaders at the hands of NIA was merely administrative, media reports said.
Speaking at a conclave organised by the Bureau of Research on Industry and Economic Fundamentals, titled Understanding Kashmir, she quoted as said, “The NIA arrests do not solve any problems, it was just an administrative. We have seen so many allegations being made against separatist leaders over the years but nothing has happened. Its good they’re being held accountable but this doesn’t help solve the real issues.”
She said, “Talks with all stakeholders is necessary, just giving precedence to law and order won’t help resolve long standing issues.”
