Mehbooba writes to Modi seeking opening of Shardapeeth pilgrimage site

SRINAGAR: Former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking opening of the Shardapeeth pilgrimage site across the Line of Control (LoC).

Mehbooba said Shardapeeth in Pak-administered Kashmir is an outstanding relic of Kashmir’s glowing history.

“The initiatives taken by (the) Government of India under your distinguished predecessors in office have resulted in the opening of Muzaffarabad and Rawalkot routes. Though their full potential has yet to be realised, the opening of Kartarpur has presented as with another window of opportunity,” she said. (AGENCIES)
