"The Amarnath terror attack has been unequivocally condemned. It was an attack on our brotherhood. After many years everyone in Kashmir is on the same page on something. We all believe this is not what Kashmir stands for," Mehbooba told ANI.
Earlier in the day, Minister of State (MoS) in the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh and Union Minister of State for Home Hansraj Ahir briefed the media about the security arrangements in Jammu and Kashmir post the Amarnath Yatra terror attack.
"Anything that happens in Kashmir finds echo across the country.
People of the Valley want the guilty to be punished. We are here on behalf of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to express our solidarity. The common youth of Kashmir is keen to be a part of the development journey led by Prime Minister Modi," he added.
Singh said the militancy is going to outlive its life soon and that India is in the last phase of militancy.
Echoing similar sentiment, Hansraj Ahir said that even after the attack, Amarnath Yatris are unfazed and enthusiastic.
