"I appealed to Pakistan and our country's head (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) to get the people of Kashmir out of this mud. I urge them to hold dialogue and befriend each other", she said while addressing a rally in Anantnag.
She further asked both the nations to resolve their issues and safeguard the soldiers.
Kashmir has been bearing the brunt of India and Pakistan's rivalry since a long time with the cases of unprovoked firing, ceasefire violation and stone pelting increasing in the state.
Earlier, the Centre appointed Dineshwar Sharma as interlocutor for the Valley to hold a "sustained dialogue with all stakeholders" to find a political solution to the Kashmir issue. (ANI)
