Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti met home minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday to discuss the law and order situation in the state and the recent attack on Amarnath pilgrims.

"I thank Home Minister Rajnath Singh and the country for showing unity on the ongoing unrest in Kashmir Valley".

"I am happy that the political parties have come together to find a solution to problems in Kashmir", Mufti said.

The Chief Minister saluted the wisdom of the people of the country who did not fall prey to the conspiracy of the perpetrators of the act to induce communal clashes in the country.

She also backed the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which has been bitterly opposed by the Centre because it runs though Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Mehbooba, the daughter of former J&K CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, expressed happiness over the political parties joining hands in the matter of Kashmir.

Asked if there was any discussion on Article 370, she said: "When the GST (Goods and Services Tax) was passed, the President reaffirmed that Article 370 will be taken in account".

Security agencies engaged in anti-militancy operations in Jammu and Kashmir have been told to implement security plans with full vigour, officials said.

On Monday, terrorists launched an attack on a bus carrying over 60 pilgrims on their way to the Amarnath cave shrine, in the Anantnag district. In August 2000, 30 pilgrims were killed during an encounter between security forces and Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists.
