Srinagar: Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti on Monday while reacting to the Hurriyat’s ‘softened stand on talks’ said that she tried her best for facilitating dialogue between pro-freedom leaders and centre.

Taking to her Twitter handle the PDP president said that the undelying purpose of her alliance with BJP was to facilitate dialogue between government of India and all stake holders,”Dair aye durust aye.The underlying purpose of PDP-BJP alliance was to facilitate dialogue between GoI & all stakeholders. Tried my best to make it happen in my tenure as CM but relieved that Hurriyat has finally softened their stand.” She wrote.

Earlier it was reported that Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said that if “meaningful” talks are initiated, “there will be a positive response”.

Kashmir’s chief cleric was refering to Governor Satya Pal Malik’s comments who had said that Hurriyat was ready for talks.

“I can tell you that if meaningful talks are initiated, there will be a positive response. Dialogue is the only way and that is our consistent stand,” he said. “Hurriyat has always been in favour of talks as the means of resolution. We have not said anything new. We have always been saying this. As the most affected party with daily killings of our young, we would naturally want peaceful resolution of the issue.”
