“Leadership of the state has a chance to prove its loyalty towards the people of Kashmir and translate the ideas of dialogue and reconciliation into a living reality. Amid the vicious cycle of violence claiming precious lives, need for dialogue has become inevitable. Government of India’s offer of talks must be reciprocated with the positive approach by the leadership of the state as it is the common man who suffering in the present period of uncertainty. It is high time that those at the helm must check the power tussles, ego clashes, and internecine conflicts, which have repeatedly debilitated the dialogue and reconciliation process,” Mansoor said.
Meanwhile, several peoples’ delegations hailing from various areas appraised Mansoor about various day to day issues and sought their redressal at the party head office here.
“Amongst the delegations was the Traders association of Jamia Masjid, Srinagar which sought the party general secretary’s intervention so that the congregational prayers could be held at the revered mosque without any hindrance by the people,” the statement said.
