Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) vice president Mohammad Sartaj Madni on Monday said involvement of Pakistan and Hurriyat in resolving Kashmir problem can become a reality soon.
Madni expressed hope that both will respond to New Delhi’s talks offer and help relieve people of the subcontinent from suffering.
Addressing a public gathering in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district Madni said Indo-Pak confrontation and insurgency have made people of Jammu and Kashmir to suffer.
Madni said it was tragedy that an effective process set by Vajpayee and Musharaf in 2002 was brought to a halt after successful start.
“Indo-Pak borders are witness to displacements and deaths. Hinterlands of the state are wrapped in anger and violence. A dismayed generation is in a defying state. In such a scenario no stake holder can and should run away from owning responsibility to contribute to ice- breaking for peace and resolution,” said Madni.
Madni said PDP leadership is consistently trying to create conducive atmosphere for dialogue at various levels.
Madni said despite difficulties his party has not fallen short of its resolve to persuade all stake holders on problem resolution. “Mehboobaji made an offer of dialogue on her own exhibiting her intentions and approach. Unfortunately no one responded. State suffered as a result immensely,” he said adding that latest ceasefire move has now become “meaningful” move as it is followed by essentially a much bigger move in the offer of dialogue to Pakistan and Hurriyat from New Delhi. “This is an opportunity which should not wasted,” he said.
