Mehbooba and Rajnath-wefornews

New Delhi, July 15, 2017: Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday met Home Minister Rajnath Singh and discussed the law and order situation in Kashmir and security to Amarnath pilgrims.

During the meeting that lasted for about half-an-hour, the Chief Minister apprised the Home Minister of the steps taken to maintain peace in the Kashmir Valley and to ensure the security of Amarnath pilgrims.

Soon after the meeting with Home Minister, Mufti told media that “The war we are fighting in Kashmir isn’t that of law and order problems. We can’t win this war unless different political parties and the entire country supports us.”

She further added that President Pranab Mukherjee re-affirmed that utmost attention will be given to section 370. “When we passed GST bill in J&K Assembly, President Pranab Mukherjee reaffirmed that section 370 will be given utmost attention. Our emotions are attached to section 370,” Mufti said.

Seven pilgrims were killed by militants in Anantnag district while returning from the Amarnath cave shrine on Monday night.

Security agencies engaged in anti-militancy operations in Jammu and Kashmir have been told to implement security plans with full vigour, officials said.

So far, more than 1.86 lakh pilgrims have visited the high altitude Himalayan shrine. As many as 21,000 paramilitary personnel in addition to state police forces and two battalions of Army have been deployed for security of the pilgrimage routes.

Four districts of the state — Pulwama, Kulgam, Shopian and Anantnag — have been on the boil since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8, 2016. The unrest resumed after the April 9 by-poll to the Srinagar Lok Sabha seat.
