Former and Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today said that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti should have released the detained Hurriyat leaders instead of simply sending a to the press, in which she urged them to join the all-party delegation meet tomorrow.

In a series of tweets, Omar Abdullah said that separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik, who are currently in prison, should be released if the CM wished to take the talks ahead.

Further slamming the chief minister for sending a letter to the press instead, Omar Abdullah said, “She should just give a list of the prisons used & the official visiting hours to the delegation and allow them to visit the detainees.”

The opposition leader's remarks came hours after Mehbooba Mufti asked separatist groups to participate in the delegation meet and engage with Parliamentarians visiting the Valley tomorrow.

On Friday, the Hurriyat Conference refused to meet the visiting Parliamentarians and urged other stakeholders to not participate in the same.

In a statement, Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Geelani said, “Parliamentary delegation is coming to Kashmir after passing a resolution that Kashmir is an integral part of . Therefore, this delegation neither has the mandate nor the intention to resolve the dispute of Jammu and Kashmir”.

The separatist party also advised Parliamentarians to hold a special session in the Parliament and accept the ‘disputed' nature of Jammu and Kashmir.
