Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday advocated for continuing business with Pakistan amidst increasing tensions. "There is an idea due to which stones are pelted, guns have been taken and there is disturbance in the Kashmir", Mehbooba said while addressing PDP workers during a rally in Srinagar to mark the 18th foundation day of ruling People's Democratic Party (PDP). Why are they doing it?. "I will not hesitate in saying that nobody will even carry the corpse of the national flag in Kashmir [if the article is scrapped]".

Discussing the idea of a joint legislature for undivided Jammu and Kashmir, she said, "There are seats reserved in our assembly for that Kashmir. We will not allow that to happen", the chief minister said.

Speaking to ANI, Singh said, "This is the most shocking and ridiculous statement which Mufti has made. That is also the official stand".

"When a tourist comes to Kashmir, he starts a dialogue with people but news channels particularly in the evenings present an image of India which is not the India I know", she said. "What she said is that administrative measures are no solution", Jalali said.

"But, you are weakening those powers which are Indian and trust India and participate in elections and who fight to live a life honourably in Jammu and Kashmir". He further added, "Given that one kilo of heroin goes for anything around Rs 5 crore, the consignment was expected to fetch Rs 200 crore if it had reached the market". "I want to see that India which accepted us on our conditions".

She appealed to all mainstream parties, including coalition partner BJP and the opposition National Conference and Congress to put their "heads together and find a way to end the bloodshed in Kashmir".

She said peace between the two countries as envisaged in the Lahore declaration during the Prime Ministership of Atal Bihari Vajpayee was still the best way forward to move in India-Pakistan relationship.

"J&K used to be a hub of trade before 1947 and our culture has an influence of Central Asia just like in India, Mughals brought their influence", Mehbooba said. They make efforts to integrate Jammu and Kashmir with India with respect and dignity.
