PDP president Mehbooba Mufti Monday said instead of violence and bloodshed, the Kashmir problem can be resolved through Kartarpur like initiatives.
“Bold, honest and humanitarian initiatives are needed to resolve Jammu and Kashmir problem. It is worthwhile to witness that Kartarpur corridor was opened on a day when so many human lives were taken by terrorism in Mumbai in 2008,” the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief said.
Mehbooba further said the decision taken by Pakistan is appreciable “and the same was reciprocated with grace and statesmanship by the leadership of our country.” By taking the decision of opening the Kartarpur corridor, country’s leadership has exhibited statesmanship that too when electoral exercise is on, she added.
“It has given us an idea that electoral considerations cannot any longer hold back the governments from taking decisions that are aimed to improve the ties between two countries,” she said.
