Madni-led delegation meets Sharma
PDP for addressing trust deficit, involving all stake holders in dialogue
SRINAGAR, Nov 8: PDP today urged Dineshwar Sharma, Centre’s special representative on Kashmir, to work for addressing the trust deficit between Delhi and Srinagar. The party also made a plea to him to widen the dialogue process by motivating all stake holders for talks to make the exercise more meaningful and effective.

PDP welcomed Sharma to Kashmir and hoped that the exercise undertaken will culminate into meaningful and tangible outcome, despite difficulties.

A PDP delegation led by its vice president Sartaj Madni today met Sharma and told him that his party has always desired to hold talks with all stakeholders so that Jammu and Kashmir state is led to resolution of all issues in accordance with the wishes of the people. He referred to initiatives taken by then prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 2003 and how then chief minister Mufti Mohmmad Sayeed successfully changed the discourse in the state. Madni urged the interlocutor to take a holistic view of the situation to end the impasse.

The delegation included general secretaries Nizamuddin Bhat and Qazi Afzal senior leader and legislator Mohmmad Khurshid Aalam, Mir Fayaz MP, Raja Manzoor, Abdul Rahim Rather and Mohmmad Abbas wani MLA’s.

Madni reminded the interlocutor about the trust deficit which impedes any good initiative for peace and resolution. He desired that Centre should do everything possible to gain the confidence of the people and stake-holders to sustain the process of dialogue till every stake holder is willingly engaged. He told the interlocutor that PDP took a brave step in forging alliance with BJP. But in the belief that like Vajpayee prime minister Narendra Modi will offer enough space for resolution of Kashmir imbroglio. Madni told him that the dialogue process should be seen as a sincere and honest effort to address issues than a mere response to violence.

The interlocutor was told about public perception is of disbelief and cynicism in Kashmir. The onus is on union government to allay apprehensions and attract political, social and religious groups of all hues for a mutually agreed common ground. Madni made it clear that unaccomplished agenda of BJP-PDP alliance is projected as another example for insincerity and viewed that conducive atmosphere needed for sustainable dialogue. Fulfilling the already made commitments was an imperative for this, he added.

Madni told the interlocutor to reach out to sufferers and youth through compassion and with an open mind. He reminded him about the instability at huge expense of the people of the region and said once the process takes off, Pakistan’s involvement will further facilitate the process to make it result oriented.
