India must talk with Pakistan, says Mehbooba Mufti

Mehbooba Mufti

Srinagar, Feb 12: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday called for India-Pakistan talks, quickly adding that she will be dubbed “anti-national” by media houses for making the appeal.

“Dialogue with Pakistan is necessary if we are to end bloodshed (in the state),” Mehbooba Mufti said in a tweet.

“I know I will be labelled anti-national by news anchors tonight but that doesn’t matter. The people of Jammu and Kashmir are suffering. We have to talk because war is not an option.”

The Chief Minister’s appeal comes amid a spurt in militant violence in the valley as well as unending cross-border clashes between Indian and Pakistani militaries.

Speaking in the state assembly “We fought and won all wars against Pakistan but even now today there is no solution other than dialogue, till when will our jawans and civilians keep dying. Wonder what some media houses would have called Atalji if he took bus to Lahore in today’s time&talked of dialogue”.

“Unfortunately, some media houses have created an atmosphere that if we talk of dialogue (with Pakistan) then we are labelled anti-national”, she added.

Supreme Court

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta on Monday informed the Supreme Court that the Centre has taken a holistic view of the issue of air pollution in Delhi NCR, which also includes pollution due to stubble burning, and it intends to bring out a legislation in next three to four days to tackle this issue.

A bench headed by Chief Justice S.A. Bobde told Mehta, representing the Centre, it welcomes the Centre’s decision to establish a body to address the menace of air pollution. “Everybody is choking in the city, it must be curbed”, said the Chief Justice citing the menace of air pollution in the national capital.

Mehta replied the Centre will come out with the legislation in three to four days and the government is keen to establish a permanent body of experts to address air pollution.

“We can come out with the legislation in three to four days”, submitted Mehta, insisting that the top court should keep its earlier order, which directed formation of a panel headed by retired judge Justice Madan B. Lokur to monitor steps taken to curb the stubble burning issue in the neighbouring states of Delhi, in abeyance.

The top court reiterated that it welcomes this step by the Centre, in which it will create a permanent body by enacting a legislation to deal with the annual air pollution problem, which includes pollution from stubble burning in Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.
