'Devolution of powers subject to consensus'
New Delhi, Aug 10: Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh Tuesday said that the Central Government could consider devolution of powers in Jammu and Kashmir, if there is a consensus on the issue within the state.
CPI (M) state secretary M Y Tarigami, who attended the all party delegation from Jammu and Kashmir that met the Prime Minister here today, told Greater Kashmir, that while autonomy was mentioned by the National Conference representatives at the meeting, Dr Singh while leaving said that there are political parties in Jammu and Kashmir which are for devolution of powers.
