Early Times Report

jammu, Jan 11: The Chief Minister has apparently communicated to the Central government that she will not succumb to the separatist pressure and will treat the issue of the West Pakistani refugees in humanitarian manner. She had also reportedly communicated that this issue need to be de-linked with the state subject.
The CM Mehbooba Mufti today defended that decision of the state government to issue identity cards to the west Pakistani refugees and also criticized some people to flair up this issue as it's being done to given them state subjects.
"It's for the first time that a CM of the J&K has defended the issuance of the identity cards to these refugees in the Assembly. It's a very huge and positive steps to grant them minimum rights. This will help in start the ball rolling for their permanent settlement, though it can't be done at this stage state," said a senior PDP leader.
The Centre has been consistently asking for
The CM seems to have put her foot fown on WPR issue and is reluctant to succumb to the pressure of the separatists.She has reportedly conveyed it to the Union Govt.
heir permanent settlement as a one time exception. But, the successive state government especially the former headed by the ex-CM Omar Abdullah gave scant regard to it.
"It was the same Mehbooba Mufti who would not speak anything favourable about them. Knowing that it could pose some political challenges and problems for her. But, now on assuming the chair she is showing some sensibilities and she is fully cooperating with the centre on this issue," said the leader. According to the sources she has agreed to the suggestion of the Centre that a narrative should be build that this is de-linked from the state subjects and project it has as humanitarian problem to be addressed beyond the prism of the Art 370 and State subject. "This is an extreme case of HR violations. And the process is on to delink from the contentious issues but it's for the first time that it's getting support from the CM of the State, which is a huge development," said the leader.
