JAMMU, April 12: Asserting that he won’t be deterred by any “small hue and cry” from the mission to establish peace and normalcy in Jammu & Kashmir, chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on Sunday said he will take along all “stakeholders” including in “mainstream or outside”. Speaking in the legislative council, he asserted that if the country faced any challenge it was establishment of peace and normalcy in Jammu & Kashmir and BJP also realized this. Except Mufti, no takers for composite townships in Kashmir . “I say if the country... if India has a challenge somewhere, it is in Jammu & Kashmir. Even the people from BJP also realize that our vision is not only to run the government, they have realized the challenge,” he said. There has been unease in BJP over the working of Sayeed such as the decision to release hardline separatist leader Masarat Alam and BJP chief Amit Shah had even said that his party would not compromise on tiol interest and could end its alliance with PDP if “Kashmir issue” is not solved. Sayeed on Sunday said that soon after the formation of the PDP-BJP coalition government in the state, he made it clear that he would ensure that everyone was taken onboard. “I want to take along all the stakeholders and by the stakeholders I mean all the people whether in the mainstream or outside it, we will take them along as well,” Sayeed said. Terming the formation of the coalition government in the state as a historic opportunity, he said that he was not afraid of “small hue and cry” being created. “People who voted overwhelmingly, gave this opportunity to make history, I am not afraid of small hue and cry,” he said.
