Jammu: Praising Narendra Modi, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohmmad Sayeed today said the coalition between PDP and BJP in the state showcased the statesmanship of the Prime Minister who wants to carry people along not by “bullet” but by “ballot” and will of the people.
“When I was talking about meeting of North Pole and South Pole...I was right. It is historic. I see it as an opportunity. Had I formed the government on my own I would not have seen such an opportunity.
“The coalition that took place between PDP and BJP shows the statesmanship of Modi. He wants to carry people along not by bullet but by ballot and will of the people,” he told reporters during an interaction at his residence here.
Stating that Modi must have had a bigger picture in mind when he joined hands with PDP, Sayeed said, “There must be a purpose. He may have seen it on a bigger canvas. I say when you have some vision, when you work on bigger canvas, there is a bigger objective. I feel so. This is itself an indication.”
On Indo-Pak ties, Sayeed said, “There is no option other than peace process. There are some hiccups in between. ...Ultimately, the goal is—peace process will continue and our relations with our neighbour will improve and we will try for that.”
