Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti met home minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday to discuss the law and order situation in the state and the recent attack on Amarnath pilgrims. External forces are meddling into this.
The statement, made by her while speaking to mediapersons after meeting Union home minister Rajnath Singh here, is being seen as a comment on Beijing's close ties with Islamabad and its repeated blocking of India's efforts at multilateral forums to get a global ban placed on Pakistan-based terrorists like Jaish e Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azhar. "We need backing of the whole country and all political parties to emerge victorious", Mehbooba said.More news: Kashmir: At least three militants killed in ongoing Pulwama encounter
The meeting, which lasted for about 30 minutes, comes after the latest terror attack on the Amarnath pilgrims on July 10 in which seven people were killed. The bus was carrying pilgrims back from Baltal after the yatra. She accused China of interfering in the state's security situation that has faced heightened terrorist activity and violent protests long-believed to be sponsored by Pakistan. "Unfortunately, even China is now interfering", the J&K CM further added.
Mehbooba Mufti said that she will also meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and discuss the present situation in the Kashmir valley.More news: Garbine Muguruza in awe of evergreen Venus Williams ahead of Wimbledon final
