Mehbooba Said We Will Ensure Those Joining Militant Ranks Return Home

Jammu, Jan 11: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said to break the nasty cycle of youth taking up arms on the death of a militant and said efforts were on to ensure that those joining militant ranks return home.

She said that her government would continue its efforts to bring back local youth who had joined militancy to end the 'vicious cycle' besides strengthening panchayats after successfully conducting the elections next month.

Mehbooba was otherwise responding to the remarks of  Omar Abdullah who had yesterday said that You talked about my role in creating Burhan Wani when I was the chief minister. Just think how many Wanis have you created under your rule.

She added that we are thankful to the parents who are appealing to their wards to return from the path of militancy. Many a youth had returned and we are not harassing them. We are happy that they are coming back,

Mehbooba said, her government had announced an amnesty to stone-pelters by withdrawing FIRs registered against them.

About 8,000 to 9,000 youth, will be benefited by withdrawal of FIRs.
