Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday admitted there is law and order problem in parts of Srinagar but said the process of restoring peace is moving on.
"We are facing difficulties but the process of restoring peace and tranquility is moving on. The law and order problem in some parts of Srinagar city does not mean that the entire valley is disturbed," Omar said speaking at a symposium on performance of legislators held here as a part of the 75th All India Presiding Officers Conference.
Welcoming Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar and participating delegates, he said their stay here will help them understand that law and order in the valley is not as bad as is projected outside the state and asked them to narrate the real story when they return to their respective states.
Asking them to paint the real picture to people, he said, "Tell your people the natives of Kashmir have hospitality flowing through their blood and are eagerly awaiting your visit to the beautiful valley, having enchanting places of natural beauty in plenty."
