Farooq asks Modi to make J&K govt deliver amid unrest
Jammu and Kashmir's former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah on Friday called on PM Narendra Modi seeking his intervention to make the state's PDP-led government "deliver on ground" to provide succour to people reeling under continued unrest in the Valley. He also pitched for starting a dialogue with "all stakeholders who are willing to talk" in order to defuse the volatile situation in the state. It was the first meeting between Abdullah and Modi after the latter assumed office.
The National Conference chief extended complete support to "all effective steps" that the Centre may take to bring relief to the people in the state.
"Education and tourism sectors are the biggest sufferers today. The state government is taking no steps to bring any relief to the common man. Now its up to the Centre to step in and ask its alliance partner (PDP) to deliver on ground," Abdullah said after the meeting.
