Calls for better coordination between PDP, BJP
NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at New Delhi on Wednesday evening, and apprised the Prime Minister of the situation in the state. She informed the Prime Minister that the people of Jammu & Kashmir have been suffering immensely due to a precarious situation for the past many decades. She brought to his notice the recent flare-up in violence along the borders in the state, which has forced thousands of people to leave their homes, hearths and daily routine. She said the dire need of the time is to de-escalate the violence and adopt the path of reconciliation, as envisioned in the Agenda of Alliance of the J&K government.
A discussion on the Agenda of Alliance took place and the need was felt to ensure time-bound progress on all its aspects, including reconciliation between groups, regions and countries and the return of power projects. Better coordination between the two ruling parties, PDP and BJP, was also stressed during the meeting.
Mehbooba Mufti discussed with the Prime Minister the execution of the Rs 1 lakh crore Prime Minister’s Development Package in the state, while underlining the need for people’s outreach for effectively percolating down the benefits of such a package.
