Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday welcomed the central government’s announcement of halting operations in the state, saying the decision will go a long way in creating a “peaceful and amicable environment for a sustained dialogue.”

In a series of tweets, Mehbooba thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh for the initiative.

“I wholeheartedly welcome the Ramadan ceasefire & would like to thank @narendramodi ji & @rajnathsingh ji for their personal intervention. My gratitude also to the leaders & parties who participated in the All Party Meeting & helped build consensus towards this announcement,” Mehbooba tweeted.

In another tweet, she said: “The month of Ramadhan is a harbinger of peace & such a decision will go a long way in creating a peaceful & amicable environment for a sustained dialogue.”

Centre has announced a conditional ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir during the month of Ramadhan. While the forces have been asked not to launch anti-militancy operations during the holy month, they have been given the right to retaliate “if attacked or if essential to protect the lives of innocent people.”
