Uri attack aimed at triggering war-like situation: Mehbooba

Condemning the deadly militant attack on an Army base in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said the attack was aimed at “triggering fresh violence and creating a war-like situation in the region.” Expressing anguish and paying rich tributes to the slain soldiers, Mufti said, “The heightened tension in the wake of Uri attack is set to further vitiate the atmosphere in and around Jammu and Kashmir amid increasing Indo-Pak hostility”.
She said unfortunately, people in Jammu and Kashmir who are already mired in an
agonizing situation shall have to bear the maximum brunt of the fresh attempts being made to step up violence and trigger fresh bloodshed in the State. “J&K has always been the worst victim of Indo-Pak hostility and its people have been paying a colossal price for the same for the past over six decades,” she added.
She said the perpetrators of violence must understand that violent methods have yielded nothing in the past nor will these yield anything in future except adding to the miseries of the people.
Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said that the attack appear to be another attempt to destabilise the Valley, adding that it’s always the people of the Valley who lose in the hostility between the two nations.
