Youth who pelt stones in Valley are in distress: CM
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday said the youth who pelt stones at security forces in the Valley are in distress and need to be engaged to understand their problems. "We have to focus on our children (stone-pelters) because they are in pain, they are in distress. I feel that the need is to engage them, to understand their problems and I am happy that (her brother and PDP candidate for Anantnag by-polls) (Mufti) Tasaduq (Hussain) is trying to play a part in that," Mehbooba said at a workers' convention in Shopian district of south Kashmir.
The chief minister said the security forces also have to show restraint while dealing with law and order problems.
"Definitely, that is something without which nothing will work. The army and security forces have to show restraint and they are showing restraint," she said.
