Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti

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.”


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
