Mehbooba meets PM, blames Pak for Kashmir crisis

 Jammu and Kashmi Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti accused Pakistan on Saturday of instigating unrest in the state.

 
She told reporter in the national capital after her meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi that youth in the Kashmir were attacking security forces and police stations after being provoked by Pakistan and separatist leaders.
 
"I want to tell Pakistan, if it has any sympathy for Kashmiris, it shouldn't provoke them to attack police stations -- and save youth from being killed," the Chief Minister said.
 
Meeting with the PM came two days after Home Minister Rajnath Singh visited Srinagar during which he met with Mehbooba, among others, as the Valley remained boiled and curfew continued for nearly two months now.
 
Mufti said she was happy that the Centre was reaching out to all stakeholders to reinstate peace in the troubled state. "I have high hopes from the prime minister."
