PM Modi breaks silence

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asserted that Government of India’s goal in Jammu and Kashmir is “good governance, development, responsibility and accountability.”
The Prime Minister Modi has spoken for the first time about J&K after Bharatiya Janata Party pulled out from the coalition government led by the Peoples Democratic Party in the state. He didn’t comment on the political situation in J&K but discussed the security related issues and the “decline” in the number of militant attacks during his rule in the country. “Recurrent militant attacks that were common under the UPA rule are now history,” the PM Modi said.
He also discussed the role of the Kashmir interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma appointed by the Government of India.”The GoI has appointed an interlocutor who is in touch with many people. He is travelling to the interiors and engaging with people,” the PM Modi said.
However, he did not speak about the BJP saying goodbye to its coalition partner PDP in Jammu and Kashmir but he hinted at the “governance part” which many people believe was not upto the mark in Jammu and Kashmir. Soon after the BJP pulled out from the coalition it blamed PDP for the prevailing mess in J&K and alleged that Jammu and Ladakh were ignored by the PDP leadership.
Soon after PDP joined hands with the BJP in Jammu and Kashmir the PDP leaders lost touch with the people and remained confined within their fortified residences and offices in Srinagar and Jammu. On the other hand BJP leaders despite facing resentment in their constituency in Jammu region tried their best to remain connected to their voters and when they realized that they are losing ground they called it quits and left PDP red faced.
