SRINAGAR: Pitching for peace and reconciliation in Jammu and Kashmir on the first death anniversary of her father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today said a “good atmosphere” in the State will compel India and Pakistan to come together.
The PDP chief said the peace process should start in the State and “first we should talk within us” as “our people are fighting against each other”.
“I request you to stand united. The relations between India and Pakistan are bad but they cannot remain the same always.
“Both the nations have to live and die together. We have to create such a good atmosphere in Jammu and Kashmir that India and Pakistan are compelled to come together,” Mehbooba said here.
She was addressing PDP workers at a function on the first death anniversary of her father and former Chief Minister Sayeed.
Mehbooba said Jammu and Kashmir bears the direct brunt of animosity between India and Pakistan. “There is a direct impact of that on the situation here… (but) the enmity is not going to continue,” she said. (AGENCIES)
