MEHBOOBA MUFTI: “MODI CAN TAKE 'POSITIVE' DECISIONS”

Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti seems impressed with BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
Referring people's perception on the Kashmir issue, Mehbooba said that Modi may take "certain tough decisions... maybe positive ones."
Mufti was speaking at the 'Idea Exchange' programme of The Indian Express recently.

Front SHELF

"Modi has a mixed response (in the Valley). Some people don't like him, mainly because J&K is a Muslim majority state - not that there haven't been communal riots before Gujarat. Riots have taken place before Gujarat riots and after that too - in Assam and more recently in Muzaffarnagar. But when it comes to Gujarat, people saw the pictures and can't forget them."
- Mehbooba Mufti, President, Peoples Democratic Party

PODIUM

"I think this example of AAP may make people change their mind... People may start believing that it (politics) is not so bad."
- Mehbooba Mufti
"Modi is the one who will have such authority that he will be able to take certain tough decisions (regarding Kashmir issue). Decisions like Vajpayee took. Otherwise no other prime minister has ever taken any tough decision."
+++
"When militancy was at its peak, he (Vajpayee) went to Lahore on the bus yatra. The same day, seven Hindu boys were killed... Even after Kargil, he invited the Pakistan President. And then Parliament (attack) happened."
- Mehbooba Mufti, President, Peoples Democratic Party

PASSAGEWAY

"In the Valley, the mainstream national parties are seen as untouchable because, firstly, they are seen as bad, and secondly, they are seen as being connected to Delhi. So, I think this example of AAP may make people change their mind... People may start believing that it (politics) is not so bad, it can have a positive impact too."
- Mehbooba Mufti, President, Peoples Democratic Party
