"He, however, didn't try", she said.

Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, while addressing a press conference said, PM Modi, can only pull Kashmir out of this mess.

He went to Lahore and met the PM of Pakistan.

"The people at the helm of affairs in the state, including the chief minister, other ministers (deputy CM), heads of state departments, vice-chairman of Development Authorities, commissioners of corporations etc need to introspect", BJP state spokesperson Prof Virender Gupta said here.

They shouted slogans against Mufti, Pakistan and ISI- sponsored terrorists, and burnt the effigy of the J&K chief minister. "It was an excuse as basically he too wanted to have a solution to this issue but couldn't do it as he lacked the strength".

After Indian Army soldiers mutilated, Pakistan Army warns against 'misadventure'
The Pakistani army denied responsibility for the cross-border attack, and said the mutilation claims were false. The government strongly condemns this act.

Though none of the PDP Ministers was present in Jammu with Mehbooba, she herself reached out to the BJP leadership by praising Modi's visit to Lahore in December 2015. It was the first visit by an Indian PM in a decade. "It is the sign of strength and courage and not the sign of weakness", she said. "Whatever he will decide the nation will support him".

Complimenting the people of Jammu for having maintained communal harmony and brotherhood despite provocations, the Chief Minister said nobody would be allowed to disturb the peaceful atmosphere and mischief mongers would be dealt with sternly.

Her statement calling PM Modi the "only hope" came on a day when BJP president Amit Shah said that the government would not hold any talks in J&K unless violence stops. Shahyad woh bhi koshish karna chahtey they ki dono mulkon mein jo confrontation hai usko khatam kar ke Jammu Kashmir ko is musibat se nikala jaye.

Mehbooba said the situation in Kashmir is not good and blamed the previous Congress-led UPA government in the centre for the prevailing anger and alienation among people in Kashmir.

The CM said while her government is trying to improve the situation in Kashmir, there are some forces which do not want it. "He was successful to a large extent in shortest of period", Mehbooba said. "It was not an ordinary feat", she said in an apparent hint to push for talks. However, BJP has skipped talking with to Pakistan or to Kashmir separatists.
