Singh, who was seated next to the chief minister on the dais, was seen making gestures to pacify Mehbooba who took on a reporter when reminded about her opposition to use of force and locking up of separatists in 2010 when rival NC leader Omar Abdullah was the Chief Minister      

"Muje kya bolenge yeh Sir. maine inke bachon ko bachaya hai Task Force se (What can they tell me. I have saved their kids from Special Task force)," Mehbooba, who lost her cool, retorted with an abrupt "thank you, now you can have a cup of tea".
