Interlocutors working closely with JK Govt: Padgaonkar
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 18: Interlocutors appointed by New Delhi to hold deliberations with various shades of opinion in Kashmir on Wednesday said they were working closely with the state government to ensure that calm and stability prevails in the state.
"We are working closely with the state government to ensure that calm and stability prevails in the state. We have already given some recommendations and many more are in the pipeline towards achieving this goal," Chief Interlocutor Dileep Padgaonkar told Greater Kashmir.
He said certain remarks about the conduct of the state government during last year's summer incidents in the Valley have been wrongly attributed to the interlocutors in a media (Times of India) report.
"There is not a shred of truth in the report. We have not made those remarks in any of our written or oral communications, neither officially nor even in private conversations to anybody," Padgaonkar said.
He said the report seeks to create fissures between "the interlocutors and the state government. This we will not allow."
As part of their engagements in the Valley, the interlocutors visited central Kashmir's Budgam district where they interacted with a number of political, social and religious delegations from the area.
The interlocutors, which also include academician Radha Kumar and former Central Information Commissioner M M Ansari, are on their eighth visit to the state since their appointment in October last year to find a political solution to the Kashmir problem.
