New Delhi, Aug 2: Jammu and Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah told that JK needs a political initiative to deal with the situation.

JK CM also told that restoration of normalcy was prerequisite for any kind of political initiative to be taken by the government in the Kashmir Valley.

After meeting prime minister on Monday, Aug 2, Omar Abdullah addressed a press conference and told that curfew will be implemented strictly and sought additional paramilitary forces especially the Rapid Action Force to deal with street protesters.

"Jammu and Kashmir is a political situation. It needs political handling. It requires a political package more than an economic package," said Omar.
