KASHMIR MEDIA NETWORK
Srinagar, Feb 6: The Chief Interlocutor Dileep Padgaonkar on Sunday said that they were waiting for a response from separatists for talks.
“We have send letters to Hurriyat (G) Chairman , Syed Ali Geelani, Hurriyat (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front Chief Muhammad Yasin Malik, and Shabir Ahmad Shah,” Padagonkar said.
“We have sent a written invitation to all the separatist leaders for talks,” he said. “We are waiting for their response.”
He said they hoped that separatists would reply. However, he was quick to add that the team was not fully aware about whether separatists had received their letters or not.
Padgaonkar said they would present their recommendation to New Delhi after they complete their next visit to the Valley.
The 3-member team of interlocutors comprising of journalist Dalip Padgaonkar, academician Radha Kumar and M M Ansari were appointed by New Delhi after last year’s summer unrest to talk to different shades of opinion.
