Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, has once again backed for talks with Pakistan to solve the woes of Jammu and Kashmir. She reportedly said that it was the “best time” for India to hold talks with Pakistan as the neighbouring country’s new Prime Minister Imran Khan is being touted as a “proxy” their army.
If initiated now, she said, the talks between the two neighbours at this time could prove “beneficial”.
“If Imran is a proxy of the Pak army then this is the best time to talk. When Imran Khan says he is ready to talk, to open corridors, then I think army is also on the same page…,” Mufti said at the ‘Agenda Aaj Tak’ event .
Mehbooba also in a tweet expressed her grief over the killings in Pulwama
How long are we going to shoulder the coffins of our youngsters? So many civilians killed today post encounter in Pulwama. No country can win a war by killing its own people. I strongly condemn these killings , and once again appeal for efforts , to stop this blood bath .
