Srinagar, Oct 7 (UNI) Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti has said the coalition government with the Congress was formed in Jammu and Kashmir with a broader vision to solicit the support at the national level to solve problems of the trouble-torn state.

The coalition was not only a power sharing agreement, but against the backdrop of sensitive situation in the state it was formulated with a broader vision to find a acceptable solution to the problem, she said while presiding over a meeting of district committees of Ganderbal, Kupwara and Srinagar.

She said a solution to the Kashmir problem was impossible in the absence of support, cooperation and goodwill at the national level.

The coalition PDP-Congress government changed the perception and the situation eased to a greater extent since it took over the reigns in the state, she said, adding that for the first time in history of Jammu and Kashmir, the state government has led the peace process.

The PDP president and MP, said many steps were taken by the coalition government in past five years. A number of Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) taken by the coalition government has helped to restore the confidence of the people in the system.

The India-Pakistan dialogue process was on a right track, the credit which goes to the chemistry between the regional forces, which represent the aspirations of general masses at the state level and the national forces in the Center, she said.

However, she said when this component disappears, the alliance will loose its relevance.

A spokesman of the PDP said the party agenda, forthcoming elections, security situation, and the overall change in political dimension of the valley were also discussed in the meeting.
