BARAMULLA, Jan 21: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday appealed Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well as to Pakistan to not make the J&K state a "jung a akhada" (a match ring for war) and to instead make Jammu and Kashmir a bridge for friendship.

Addressing passing out cadres Mehbooba Mufit said Jammu and Kashmir police and other security agencies face the challenges in the daily life at every step.
"Let me tell that you have to face new challenges every now and then. You will faces certain difficulties be it from our own brethren. You have to shown patience," said Mufti.
She said: "Our soldiers got martyred, civilians are being killed, and children get affected on borders, and the same fate would be of the people on other side of LoC, and this is again a challenge for our state, because people from JK are being killed."
She said, "Infiltration bids happen and militants come from other side of LoC to disrupt peace and unfortunately our children pick up the guns which is also a big challenge for us, we have to deal with them; we want these people to return to their homes and live a peaceful life."
Police force is the best force we have ever seen, while dealing with militancy related situations, there should be maximum restraint so that no civilian gets affected, she said in her speech.
CM said that at a time when development is happening all over the country, there are good colleges, hospitals and, good roads, but our own people want bunkers and other safety measures.On borders schools are closed where as our students have been confined to homes. Its a big challenge for us.
"I appeal Prime Minister Narendra Modi and our neighboring country, J&K ko jung ka akhada mat banaiye, dosti ka pul banaiye (do not make J&K a match ring for war, make it a bridge for friendship), stop this bloodbath that is taking place on borders, we want to live here with peace and prosperity," she said.
Addressing the new police cadres she said that you have to work for the betterment of society, recently a small girl was brutally murdered in Kathua and somewhere and somewhere it was found negligence on part of the police official after which SHO was suspended, she added. It is pertinent to mention here that, "472 Recruit Constables selected through Transparent Recruitment Process (TRP) passed out after completion of their basic training from Police Training center (PTC) Sheeri Baramulla.
