Baramulla: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan to not make the state a battleground.
Mufti while speaking at the passing-out parade of new police constables here at Subsidiary Training Centre said that when the entire nation is reaching new heights, Jammu and Kashmir is moving in the opposite direction.
“There is a lot of bloodshed at our border. The country is moving on the path of development, but the opposite is happening in the Valley. I appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well as Pakistan to not make Jammu and Kashmir a battleground, but should try to make a friendly relation with each other,” Mufti said. She also regretted the loss of lives in shelling by both sides.
The Chief Minister said that the work of Jammu and Kashmir Police is the toughest one.
“Jammu and Kashmir Police have the biggest challenge in front of them. They have to face their own people while maintaining law and order and keep patience while dealing with it,” she said. ANI
