J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti calls on PM Modi, discusses situation in the Valley

New Delhi: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and discussed the situation in the state in wake of mounting tensions between India and Pakistan and repeated ceasefire violations by the latter along the LoC and International Border.

The meeting lasted for nearly an hour during which the Chief Minister apprised the Prime Minister of the law and order situation gripped by unrest after the killing of Burhan Wani, a Hizbul Mujahideen commander, on 8 July, official sources said.

The Chief Minister also discussed with the Prime Minister the ongoing developmental projects in the state and thanked him for continued support for the uplift of the people of the troubled state, the sources said.

Mehbooba met the Prime Minister for the first time after Indian army carried out surgical strikes across the LoC and destroyed seven terrorist launch pads in PoK.

Mehbooba, who is in the national capital since Tuesday, also informed him about the steps taken by her government for evacuating people from the border villages to safer places in view of the escalation of tension between the two countries.

Pakistan has been repeatedly violating the ceasefire, using mortars and small arms, resulting in injuries to five civilians and some defence personnel.
