SRINAGAR: Member Parliament and senior leader of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, Muzaffar Hussain Baig, in a startling revelation here on Sunday said that a conspiracy was hatched to kill Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani with the intention of destabilising Mehbooba Mufti-led government.

Baig said, “We will reveal all about this conspiracy at the appropriate time,” Baig was addressing a party convention in Srinagar.

Baig said neither continuing shutdown nor stone pelting could help resolve Kashmir issue as the poor outcome to Intifada movement of the Palestinians was a glaring example. In veiled reference to separatist group Hurriyat Conference, Baig said, “Dialogue is the only way to resolve Kashmir issue.”

Baig said Narendra Modi, being a Hindu-majority prime minister, is the only ‘courageous man’ to resolve Kashmir issue. “Narendra Modi is a prime minister elected by thumping majority with majority Hindu community in India and he alone can resolve Kashmir issue and it was with this intent that PDP preferred an alliance with BJP on government formation in Jammu and Kashmir State,” Baig said. “Even if a Muslim becomes a prime minister of India he will not be in a position to resolve Kashmir issue.”
