Centre’s dialogue announcement waste of time: Farooq Abdullah


‘All reports on Kashmir should be debated in Parliament’

Srinagar, Oct 23: Former chief minister and NC president Dr Farooq Abdullah Monday said that the centre failed in all its measures about dealing with Kashmir and now have announced dialogue on Kashmir which is “waste of time”.
According to the KNS correspondent, the MP said that centre should present the report of all interlocutors, N N Vohra late Dileep Padgoankar on Kashmir in Parliament.
“All these reports are lying with Home Minister which should be debated in the parliament,” he said.
“What is the need to appoint another person as interlocutor? Did not Padgoankar held sustained dialogue for two years. What is its basis? (Ajit) Doval’s doctrine of suppressing Kashmiris has failed. Kashmiri’s showed that the more they are suppressed the more they rise,” he said while talking to reporters here.
“They thought demonetisation will end this here, but it did not. So their policies failed and now they came up with this announcement to start dialogue process here,” he said.
He said that BJP came up with many stands and all these stands proved futile.
“This announcement of dialogue is another ploy on Kashmir and waste of time,” he said, adding that the NC has reiterated that Kashmir is a political issue which needs political solution.
While announcing the centre’s sustained dialogue on Kashmir, Singh said that t former Director of IB, Dineshwar Sharma will initiate a sustained interaction and dialogue to understand legitimate aspirations of people in Jammu and Kashmir. (KNS)
