Jammu & Kashmir CM Mufti meets Rajnath over state’s development issue

New Delhi, Feb 27: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh at his residence in the national capital, regarding the issue of development in the state.

It is notable that regular terror-related activities in the valley have hampered the development, and frequent reports of stone pelting incidents have also emerged as an added nuisance.

The state government’s decision to release the first offenders of stone-pelting can, therefore, have important undertones in the meeting, news agency ANI reported.

Earlier, on February 6, Minister for Agriculture Ghulam Nabi Lone Hanjura, replying on behalf of Minister for Home, informed that the government has approved the withdrawal of cases registered against 530 first-time offenders from Shopian during the period 2008-2017, following the recommendations of the Committee constituted by the government.
