'Talk to Pakistan too': Mehbooba Mufti tells PM

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Mehbooba Mufti has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should hold talks with Pakistan on the Kashmir issue. Speaking to reporters after a meeting of the Gupkar alliance, she said that the "Prime Minister should talk to Pakistan too".

“If they can go to Doha and talk to the Taliban, they should have a dialogue with us and with Pakistan too in order to bring about a resolution,” she said.

Mufti said that the alliance leaders will attend the meeting called by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 24. She said that the leaders will put forth their views and press for demand to restore Jammu and Kashmir's statehood.

The leaders of the constituent parties, including Mufti and CPI(M) leader M Y Tarigami, met at alliance chairperson Farooq Abdullah's residence in Srinagar, who is also the National Conference president. Over the past two days, Jammu and Kashmir's political parties held intra-party discussions. 

PM Modi is slated to chair a meeting in Jammu and Kashmir on June 24 and as many as 14 leaders, including four former CMs of the erstwhile state, have been invited.
