Dialogue only way to resolve JK issue: Vakil
Budgam, July 24: Member AICC and former minister, Abdul Gani Vakil has said the dialogue was only platform to move ahead to resolve all issues relating to Jammu and Kashmir amicably in accordance with the aspirations of the people of State.
He said that by confrontation and violence nothing could be achieved. “It will only add to the difficulties.”
“We have already wasted more than 20 years in violence and militancy. The society has received heavy jolt on all fronts. Thousands of precious human lives have been consumed by the violence. The economy has received downward dip”, but some people still want to do politics on dead bodies,” Vakil said while addressing public at Wahabpora here.
He said the new window of dialogue had been provided by Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh and UPA Chairperson, Sonia Gandhi to provide opportunity to all shades of opinion in the State to present their view point through talks with Interlocutors.
Vakil appealed to the Hurriyat leadership to shun abhorrence and participate in the dialogue process to bring an end to the spate of violence across the Valley "The Hurriyat leadership needs to participate in the dialogue process which would brighten chances of bringing permanent peace across the Valley as violence, shutdown, curfew are all going to further worsen the situation,” Vakil said
He said continued reluctance of the Hurriyat leadership in coming forward for talks was not understandable, and they should understand that talks are the only way out.
Vakil hailed the Prime Minister and UPA Chairperson for announcing packages for the state. He said the recently announced special package 0f 1000 crore being formulated for unemployed youth would help tide over unemployment problem in the state to a great extent.
He stressed upon the Chief Minister to fulfill his commitment of absorbing 50,000 youth in different departments so that credibility of the government was restored and also demanded immediate implementation of employment package given by the centre to the state.
Vakil again urged Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah to take immediate and necessary action against sales tax defaulter
Vakil cautioned workers of those elements who are in a conspiracy to weaken the Congress for their vested interests and said every effort would be made to foil their evil designs because country cannot afford to weaken nationalist forces as it will be dangerous to the political and national interest.
