Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the situation in the state in wake of mounting tensions between India and Pakistan and repeated ceasefire violations along the LoC and International Border.
The Chief Minister apprised Modi of the law and order situation after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8.
The Chief Minister also briefed the PM about the ongoing developmental projects in the state and thanked him for continued support for the upliftment of the people of the troubled state, the sources said.
Mehbooba met the Prime Minister for the first time after Indian army carried out surgical strikes across the LoC and destroyed seven terrorist launch pads in PoK.
Mehbooba, who is in the national capital since yesterday, also informed him about the steps taken by the her government for evacuating people from the border villages to safer places in view of the escalation of tension between the two countries.
Pakistan has been repeatedly violating the ceasefire, using mortars and small arms, resulting in injuries to five civilians and some defence personnel.
