Srinagar: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi alone can help the people of the state in these troubling circumstances.
“If anyone can take us out of the sticky spot, it is Prime Minister Modi. The nation will support whatever he decide,” a news report quoted Mehbooba as saying.
She said that PM Modi showed his strength by visiting Pakistan amid tensions between the two countries, the report added.
These remarks came a day after Governor N N Vohra met with Modi in Delhi.
Earlier, when Mehbooba met Modi in Delhi, she was told to bring normalcy in the state which will follow talks, reports said.
Other reports suggested that Mehbooba had pleaded to talk to all stakeholders, including pro-freedom group, which was denied by the centre, terming that it will indicate weakness.
