SRINAGAR: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today made it clear that there was “no other solution” to the wide range of issues plaguing the State than implementing the ‘agenda of alliance’ reached between the PDP and the BJP, that aims to provide a representative Government.
“We are sure there is no other solution. How long will we fight with each other? How long will Kashmiris be killed? How long will our kids bear the brunt of this trouble? There is no other way. And if not today, then tomorrow, it (implementation of agenda of alliance) has to happen,” Mehbooba said.
The agenda of alliance was reached between PDP and BJP after the elections in the State delivered a split mandate in December 2014, and after two months of hectic negotiations. It aims to provide a representative Government in the State.
“(Former chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed) had full confidence that the agenda of alliance, which talks about (revocation of) of AFSPA, retrieving of land (from security forces), (return of) power projects (to the State) and dialogue, is the only solution to (the issue of) Jammu and Kashmir and that there is no other option,” she said at an event organised by the State cultural academy here.
