Rehabilitation of victims 'deep concern' for Mehbooba: PDP

Press Trust of India  |  Jammu 

The Peoples Democratic Party today said the rehabilitation of victims of unrest in the state has been a "deep concern" for Chief Minister

The comment from the party came after its ally, the BJP, yesterday said that a well-governed state was the "only guarantee" against militancy.

"The rehabilitation of victims of unrest has been a deep concern for Mufti and providing resource and support to most affected persons is her desire which she wants to pursue with absolute empathy and humility," Sartaj Madni, the vice president of PDP, said.

Madni said that PDP leadership has always felt that state's people cannot thrive into a situation of conflict and confrontation.

PDP's emergence is an outcome of the critical need to lead the state into stability through reconciliation and healing, he said.

A few days ago, Mufti had said that militancy cannot be wiped out by killing militants alone and a more 'humane approach' was needed to tackle the problem.
