Srinagar, June 4: Hoping that the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh’s visit to Jammu and Kashmir will help rejuvenate the internal dialogue process, Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah Friday said talks are the only way forward to resolve issues.
Omar said the state government would actively facilitate the peace process to help address political issues. “I have time and again maintained that the state government would actively facilitate the internal and external dialogue processes to help restore permanent peace and address political issues”, Chief Minister said at a felicitation function organized in his favour by the Civil Secretariat Employees Coordination Committee here.
“All of us have to work together to create conducive atmosphere for dialogue to seek solution to the issues and pave way for peaceful and developed Jammu and Kashmir,” he said and added that confrontation has never helped to settle issues. “We have to look towards the process of interaction for addressing issues,” he said.
Omar said the government would fulfil all its commitments made to the employees pertaining to their genuine demands. “In fact on the first day of opening of offices at Jammu, after the new government assumed office, I made it clear at a press conference that Government will implement the 6th pay panel recommendations. “We have fulfilled the promise and are gradually moving towards meeting other demands of employees”, he said.
The Chief Minister said the right way for employees to express their happiness on Government’s friendly gestures is to make public service the benchmark of their functioning. “Your happiness for the actions of the Government should reflect in your timely coming to office, clearing the desks fast and showing affection to the people visiting the secretariat to pursue their cases”, he told the employees.
Omar said the cordial relation between employees and the government is in the interest of the public.
