CM welcomes APD resolution


SRINAGAR, SEPTEMBER 07: Welcoming the resolution adopted at the All Party Meeting in New Delhi which calls for dialogue with all stakeholders in and , Chief Minister, Ms Mehbooba today said engagement and reconciliation is the only way forward to end the stalemate and make peace, stability and prosperity a reality in the State and the region.

Ms Mehbooba said unfortunately the separatist leadership missed the recent opportunity of engaging with the country's Parliamentarians, during their visit to the State, to find a solution to the problem.  “There is no alternative to dialogue, and somebody has to engage with somebody to find a way out and it stands true for J&K as well,” she said and added that by shying away from talks, the separatist leadership is in the danger of being squarely blamed for holding up the resolution process when an opportunity was there to address the issue through political and democratic means.

She said now that the resolution adopted at the All Party Meeting in New Delhi has reiterated the urgency of engagement and dialogue in Jammu and Kashmir, “we hope a fresh and productive effort would be made by the country's political leadership to reach out to all the stakeholders in the State to address the issue through inclusive and comprehensive engagement.”

The Chief Minister said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir, irrespective of their age, gender, status or the political affiliation, have been suffering the disastrous consequences of the turmoil and unrest and they have to be retrieved from this blood-spattered quagmire, sooner the better. “The onus lies not only on the Government but the separatist leadership as well to give the peace and resolution process a chance by coming forward with a concrete roadmap,” she said.
