Hurriyat stakeholder, no talks with militants: Dy CM

Hurriyat stakeholder, no talks with militants: Dy CM”

He said it was in the "Agenda of Alliance" of the PDP-BJP that state would create an atmosphere conducive for talks. "Its a milestone", said Dr Jitendra Singh, MoS PMO.

It is first time that the saffron party is holding the State working committee meeting in Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir.

"Had our intention been not to talk to Hurriyat, then the letter would not have gone to them".

Asked whether talks will be held with Pakistan as were held during Atal Behari Vajpayee's tenure, the BJP leader divulged the question and replied: "This time, the announcement has been made that Dineshwar Sharma would talk with all groups in J & K". "But they did not come forward for talks", he said. They also shut their doors to the Parliamentary delegation. "The interlocutor has the right to talk to anybody".

He said that ministers, legislators and all the office bearers of the party in the state will take part in the meeting.

"We want the dialogue to start soon and everyone should come forward and place their point of view", he said. "Talks can not be held with those, who have picked up gun". The Deputy Chief Minister however said that all coalition partners have appreciated the appointment of interlocutor.

Stating that Hurriyat was a "stakeholder" in the Kashmir problem, Deputy Chief Minister, Nirmal Singh, on Saturday said talks could not be held with militants. The leaders have not issued any statement and refused to talk to media in this regard.

Neither rejecting nor accepting the Centre's dialogue offer so far, separatist leaders - Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik - on Friday described Jammu and Kashmir's ordinance on setting the quantum of punishment for protests and damage to property as "outrageous and dictatorial".
