‘Start unconditional talks with Kashmir stakeholders’

CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury on Monday urged the government to begin an "unconditional dialogue" with all stakeholders of the Kashmir including separatists.

 

According to Yechury such dialogues can bring peace in Kashmir that is standing still for nearly two months. It is certainly the deadliest unrest in years, he added. 

 

"The state and central governments have to take the political dialogue forward now. There will be no solution without it. The dialogue should be unconditional," Yechury told the media here. 

 

Yechury spoke a day after some leaders from the all-party delegation of MPs, who had gone to meet separatist leaders, were affronted. 

 

Separatists refused to talk to the MPs who had gone in their individual capacity and not as a part of the delegation from Delhi. 

 

The CPI-M leader, who also tries to meet Hurriyat leaders, said that he was not snubbed. "They met us. Only one (Syed Ali Shah Geelani) didn't. However, they refused to speak on Kashmir issue," Yechury said.
