Pickup Threads From Vajpayee Ceasefire And Talk, Mehbooba Tells India, Pakistan

SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said that leadership of India and Pakistan should rise above their political compulsions and initiate dialogue.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Mehbooba wrote: “Sad to see mounting casualties on both sides of LoC. If only Indian & Pakistani leadership could rise above their political compulsions & initiate dialogue. Restoring the ceasefire agreed upon & implemented by Vajpayee ji & Musharaf sahab is a good place to start.”

Mehbooba was reacting to shelling at the Line of Control (LoC) on Friday in which five soldiers and four civilians were killed while more than 15 people were injured.
