SRINAGAR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a strong mandate to act and the leverage to take a bold initiative on Kashmir but the four years of NDA rule at the Centre were “wasted” as “no breakthrough has been achieved,” former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said today.
The National Conference (NC) vice-president was addressing party workers at Baramulla in north Kashmir.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a strong mandate in the Parliament to act. He had the power and the leverage to take a bold initiative on Kashmir as unlike past prime ministers he was not as constrained by compulsions. Unfortunately, four years have been wasted and no breakthrough has been achieved,” Abdullah said. (AGENCIES)
