Srinagar, July 29 (IBNS): Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday sought “freedom” for Kashmiris who she said “have been caged” by blocking of various routes.

Addressing a workers’ meet on the party’s founding day in Srinagar, Mehbooba batted for the re-opening of routes between Jammu and Sialkot, Kargil and Skardu and Nowshera and Jhanger.

"Like Mufti Sahab, I have been repeatedly seeking opening of these roads,” said Mehbooba.

Quoting her father, Mehbooba said that Kashmiris have been caged. “Free Kashmiris,” he would say.

She also appealed to other political parties like the National Conference, Congress, BJP and others to sit together and find a solution to the problems Kashmiris are facing.

“We fought alone in the past. My appeal to NC, Congress, BJP and Communists is let’s sit together and resolve our issues,” she said.

Mehbooba also said that India was incomplete without Jammu and Kashmir. “JK is crown of India. It needs to be respected. India is incomplete without Jammu and Kashmir,” she said.
