"The central government headed by Narendra Modi shall have to pursue an agenda which would be politically-inclusive and developmentally-intensive and it shall have to take measures to address both the internal and external dimensions of the Kashmir issue taking on board all the stakeholders including the separatists," Peoples Democratic Party patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed said addressing an election rally in Ganderbal constituency.

Sayeed said while PDP would continue to act as a facilitator for resolving the Kashmir issue and the matters confronting Jammu and Kashmir, the party would carry forward its agenda of political resolution, economic development, good governance, justice and merit, for which it had laid foundation in 2002.

Terming the power of vote as the game-changer in a democratic setup, he said a new course for Jammu and Kashmir can be decided only by the people by exercising their right to franchise effectively.

"Let me make it clear that the power to change the destiny of the State lies with the people of Jammu and Kashmir and not elsewhere," he said.
