Pertinently, Union Home Ministry Wednesday announced the unilateral ceasefire during the holy month of Ramadhan in Jammu and Kashmir.

Deepak while addressing the students said that the decision so imposed by the government on Indian army is purely with the intention of the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to slow down operation All Out in the valley.

Briefing media persons here on Thursday, State President of Janata Dal United (JDU), G.M Shah said that after the death of Burhan Wani there is volatility in the State due to the ill-conceived and confused policies of the unholy alliance of the PDP and BJP.

It is the same Prime Minister who has directed its forces and local agents to kill each and every freedom loving Kashmiri and the same Modi is staging drama of visiting the disputed region as if nothing wrong was going here, the spokesman said.

Mehbooba Mufti also thanked all the political parties in the State which backed her idea of cessation of hostilities in one voice during the All Parties Meeting convened by her recently.
