Dineshwar Sharma on Hurriyat boycott: Will visit again

The political discussions with Omar Abdullah took place just three days after party president Farooq Abdullah dismissed Dineshwar Sharma’s visit to Kashmir

Prominent among those who interacted with Sharma were delegations from the Jammu Chambers of Commerce and Industry, the Jammu Bar Association, representatives of West Pakistan refugees and others. Sharma, who was appointed the Centre's special representative last month for consultations with various groups and political parties, called on state governor N N Vohra and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti here last night and discussed the ways to reach out to the stakeholders, officials said.

"Late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had the vision that migrants are part of Kashmiriyat and they should return with dignity, as Kashmiri Pandits are an inseparable part of the Kashmiri society, and the inclusive ethos, for which Kashmir has been known for ages, is incomplete without them", Prof Mattoo further maintained.

They said that there is an imperative need to restore peace in the Kashmir valley. To another question as to whether Hurriyat was a stakeholder in the talks, he said all Indian nationals in J&K were stakeholders and added that the talks with various delegations in the Valley and Jammu in the past five days had been fruitful.
