NC for early resolution to Siachen
Srinagar, Apr 20: National Conference (NC) additional General Secretary, Dr Mustafa Kamal today urged the leadership of India and Pakistan to restart composite dialogue process for resolving all outstanding issues between the two countries.
Addressing a function at party headquarters, Dr Kamal appreciated initiatives taken by the Pakistani Army chief Parvez Kiyani and External Affairs Minister Heena Rabani Khar over the Siachen issue.
“India and Pakistan have realized that army presence in Siachen Glacier is a burden for both the countries. It is a win win situation for both the countries if they reached an agreement over the issue,” he said.
Stressing upon the Indo-Pak leadership to restart composite dialogue process to resolve all outstanding issues, Kamal said once both the countries would sit together; the Kashmir issue would also be resolved.
Earlier, Dr Kamal was accorded a warm reception on his reappointment as additional General Secretary. “It is the reward of sacrifices of Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah and his colleagues that no one in the state is homeless and no one sleeps hungry. This is the biggest achievement of movement of NC leadership,” he said.
He termed the accusations of the opposition PDP against NC as a bundle of lies. “If PDP had done wonders on development front when they were in power in 2002, then why they lost 2008 assembly and parliament elections in the State,” he said.
“PDP leadership particularly Mufti Muhammad Sayeed while in power used every possible way to eliminate NC from south Kashmir which he eventually failed. Our workers were eliminated and terrorized by PDP. Now the situation has changed. People have realized the negative propaganda of PDP and NC is becoming a powerful party with each passing day in entire state,” he said.
On the occasion Member parliament Sharief-ul-Din Shariq said the entire NC leadership welcomed the move of Dr Farooq Abdullah to appoint Dr Kamal on the post.
