Whatever J&K should get, it will get from India: Mehbooba Mufti

I was blamed for creating one, but they've created many Burhan Wanis: Omar Abdullah

Educated youth resorting to militancy is worrying: Omar Abdullah

Earlier, Minister for Revenue, Abdul Rehman Veeri said that the killed youth was innocent and government has initiated a magisterial probe in this matter.

The opposition members accused Mehbooba of running away from making a statement on the sensitive issue of killing of a civilian in the Kulgam district.

After raising slogans of "Stop Innocent Killings" and "Stop Human Rights Violations" for almost half-an-hour, the entire opposition staged a walkout despite repeated assurances by the speaker that the government had already ordered a probe into the incident.

"Yesterday, one youth was killed in Homshalibugh".

Central government is doing everything possible to return peace in the Valley, it even appointed an interlocutor with the powers of a cabinet secretary.

Soon after the statement, Omar Abdullah and other Opposition members staged a walkout.

"If the innocent killings continue, what is the fun of our sitting in the legislative assembly?" the Left leader asked.

Ms Mufti said that Dineshwar Sharma, the centre's special representative for Jammu and Kashmir, is much more empowered than the previous interlocutors for the state, but people can't be forced to talk. "The atmosphere is conducive to resolve Kashmiri violence through inclusive political process", Mufti said, adding that Prime Minister can resolve the Kashmir issue once and for all.

"The people of Jammu and Kashmir, whether in mainstream or outside, should understand that whatever we will get, we will get it from this country alone and not from anywhere else.Honorable position, life with dignity, opening of (cross-LoC) routes, taking trade to another level, or ending bloodshed to start dialogue".

He charged that the security situation was deteriorating in the state and the government had failed on all fronts.

He said use of "brute force" against protesters was another point of discussion.
