She is responsible for continuous bloodshed in state, said spokesman and added that it is the callous & egoistic approach of state rulers that youth opted for armed struggle.

Spokesman said that people in 2016 & through peaceful struggle conveyed their political aspirations and our brave hearts too suspended their activities, however authorities remained unmoved. Instead of any positive response and heeding to the woes, reinforced more and more armed personnel, said spokesman.

Blaming Delhi for its stubborn attitude, spokesman said that instead of asking brave hearts for joining mainstream, she should have asked and advised Narinder Modi & Rajnath Singh about the ground realities of Kashmir.

They failed to change the heart of people and their every attempt failed to suppress our sentiments, said spokesman.

It is quite ridiculous, while referring to statement of Mehbooba Mufti and said that parliamentary delegation had no mandate or clear agenda and Rajnath sigh in his statement denied their representative character, saying that they were not deputed instead it was their choice to meet Hurriyat leaders.
