Excelsior Correspondent

Srinagar, July 27: Jammu and Kashmir is a “political problem” which would not be solved by military means, former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said today, as she criticised the Centre’s decision to deploy additional 100 companies of Central Armed Police Force (CAPF) to the Valley.
Mehbooba, the president of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), also said the Centre needs to “rethink and overhaul its Kashmir policy.”
“Centre’s decision to deploy additional 10,000 troops to the Valley has created fear psychosis amongst people. There is no dearth of security forces in Kashmir. J&K is a political problem which won’t be solved by military means. GOI needs to rethink & overhaul its policy,” Mehbooba wrote on Twitter.
