It is of course a sign of good governance that the Valley has returned to normal after five months of unrest. This all happened due to the all-out efforts of chief minister Mehbooba Mufti who braved all odds to teach a befitting lesson to those hell bent on vitiating peace and tranquility in the region. Despite her statements being misquoted by the elements with vested interests, she emerged a strong statesman in coming out of such negative propaganda launched to dethrone her in one way or other. Her tireless efforts towards empowering the girl child is hidden from none and she has been a role model for girls of the state for her pro-girl initiatives. From Beti Bachao Beti Padhao to launching of scooty schemes, she has completely devoted herself for the women-folk. Moreover, she took this Valley out of the cycle of violence which has affected the State in every respect. As such, she deserves all hail and appreciation.
