New Delhi [India] Apr 24 (ANI): Even as Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh in New Delhi, amid the turbulent state in the Vallety with soaring protests and clashes, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ram Madhav on Monday asserted there was no rift in the BJP-People's Democratic Party (PDP) alliance, but didn't rule out on a possible 'lack of communication' between the two parties. "There is no rift. There is some issue regarding the MLC elections. We noticed that there lack of communication between the two parties," BJP leader Ram Madhav said. He added that these issues will be addressed and will be dealt with. Mehbooba Mufti, after meeting Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, assured that within two-three months the situation in the Valley would definitely improve. "In a period of two-three months, you will see a changed Jammu and Kashmir. Next few months are really crucial for us. We will first restore the normalcy, than we will talk. This issue is as old as 70 years," Mufti said. Mufti further appealed to the media to help in restoring peace in Jammu and Kashmir. Mufti also asserted that the ruling dispensation at the Centre must follow the footsteps of former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and reach out to the disillusioned and angry youth so as to restore a peaceful atmosphere for governance. Talking to the media after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mehbooba said a conducive atmosphere was required for talks and governance. Prime Minister Modi had earlier on Sunday urged all the Chief Ministers to take care of the students from Jammu and Kashmir in their respective states. The meeting assumes significance in the backdrop of several video clips surfacing in recent times, purportedly showing human rights abuses by the security forces. (ANI)
