While speaking at the Jammu and Kashmir assembly, chief minister Mahbooba Mufti said "whatever the state will get, it will get from India only, Jammu and Kashmir will not get anything from any other country".

She asked the people of the state that if they do not accept India's constitution, Jammu and Kashmir's constitution, which constitution are they going to follow? 

She also said that Jammu and Kashmir had the most empowered assembly in the country. Referring to the Goods and Services Tax (GST), she said it was implemented in the entire country at one go but that it came to Jammu and Kashmir only after a proper debate in the assembly.

She also requested in the assembly that the political issue should not be "hijacked" as a religious issue. She said whatever may be going on in the country, but there is harmony in the state alliance.

She said it feels great to see religious diversity in the morning when bells in the temple, gurbani and morning azaan are heard.
