Mehbooba Mufti addresses the media in Srinagar.

“I have submitted my resignation to the Governor. Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had entered into this alliance, thinking that BJP is a big party which had got a big mandate,” Mehbooba Mufti said.


“It took a lot of months to come to an agenda, whose main objective was reconciliation and dialogue in Jammu and Kashmir. We wanted confidence-building measures in Kashmir,” she said.

“The biggest apprehension was Article 370, about our special status. In the last three years, we defended Article 370 in courts. We also withdrew cases against over 11,000 youths,” she added.

“I sent the resignation stating that we (PDP) dont want to explore any other alliance.”

“We have always believed that muscular policies won’t work in Jammu and Kashmir. This is not enemy territory. This is the reason for the unilateral ceasefire,” she also said.

“The major intention of this alliance was the ceasefire and not the power. We succeeded in it.”

“We wanted to save 370, we tried our best. We stood by our agenda.”
