Autonomy, self-rule can’t resolve K-issue: Vakil
Jammu, Dec 24: Former Minister and Member AICC Abdul Gani Vakil today said that neither a self rule proposal of the People’s Democratic Party nor autonomy of National Conference can resolve Kashmir issue.
“These parties have to understand that Kashmir issue can only be resolved when all the parties including separatists would sit together and would take into account the aspirations of people of all the three regions,” Vakil said in a statement.
“Resolution of Kashmir issue is enshrined in collective wisdom of the parties concerned, a criterion which the self-rule or autonomy proposals don’t fulfill,” he said.
Vakil said Congress would not allow anybody to use Kashmir issue to change the fortunes or misfortunes of political exploiters. “Kashmir issue cannot be treated as commodity on which dirty politics can be played,” he added.
Vakil said that Article 370 is to be strengthened and those communal forces bent upon dividing the state are to be kept at bay. He said divisive forces favoring abrogation of Article 370 were the enemies of state and were trying weakening state's relation with Centre but he asserted that Congress would leave no stone unturned in defeating evil designs of those forces who are conspiring to weaken Article 370.
