Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday for supporting her government during the “difficult time” last year.

Mufti -- apparently referring to the law and order situation in the Kashmir Valley after the July 8 killing of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani -- said Modi ensured that the state government survived the situation.

Mufti was addressing a rally in Udhampur after Modi inaugurated the state-of-the-art Chenani-Nashri tunnel, the longest in the country at nearly 11 km.

“My government would not have been able to handle it alone,” she said, and added that Modi provided central assistance through Union home minister Rajnath Singh, who was always there to help the Jammu and Kashmir government.

She also praised Modi for his “determination”, saying he delivers whatever he aims at.

Mufti invited Modi to the state, saying he must visit Kashmir and give a message to the entire world that it is safe for tourists.
