Join talks: Sagar tells Hurriyat
Srinagar, Dec 5: Senior National Conference (NC) leader and Minister for Rural Development, Ali Muhammad Sagar Wednesday urged Hurriyat leadership to join dialogue process as gun and violence has yielded no results.
Addressing NC workers at late Sheikh Muhammad Abdullah’s mausoleum here, Sagar said time has proved that dialogue is the only option for resolving issues. “I urge Hurriyat leadership to shun rigid approach and join the talks as gun and violence has achieved nothing. He said Sheikh Sahab too had been advocating dialogue for peaceful resolution of issues,” he said.
Sagar said the state government has fulfilled its promise of bringing powers out of the secretariat to the ground level. “People proved that they want redressal of daily issues like roads, power and other issues. This is the reason we witnessed 93 percent voting in recently held Legislative Council (LC) elections,” Sagar said. “But this doesn’t mean Kashmir issue is nowhere. Kashmir issue stands very much and efforts are on to resolve it.”
He said it was high time for NC leadership and workers to follow the footsteps of Sheikh to achieve the mission set by him.
