Sit together to resolve K-issue: NC to India, Pak
Jammu ( Doda), June 10: The National Conference on Sunday advised India and Pakistan to sit together and resolve the Kashmir issue once for all.
NC’s Additional General Secretary Dr Mustafa Kamaal, while addressing party conventions at Doda and Baderwah, said: “Kashmir instead of being a bone of contention should be a means of brotherhood for both the neighboring countries. Hostility has already destroyed a lot between New Delhi and Islamabad.”
“Both the countries fought four wars and out of these wars two were fought on Kashmir soil. If the Kashmir issue is not resolved there is no guarantee of permanent peace in both the countries,” he added.
Appealing both the neighboring countries to show a liberal approach towards the resolution of all outstanding issues, including Kashmir, Dr Kamal said: “Live in peace must remain foreign policy of both the countries to start a new era of peace and development in entire south Asia.”
He said both the countries had lost billions of rupees on defense, which could have been otherwise utilized in welfare and developmental schemes. “It is high time for India and Pakistan to adopt a realistic approach, to resolve all outstanding issues,” he said.
Kamaal said that restoration of internal autonomy is and would continue to remain on the top of NC’s agenda. He said that the document has legal validity since it was passed by state legislature.
Castigating PDP and BJP, Dr Kamal said that they are the face of the same coin and it is quite obvious that PDP is the creation of BJP. He said they would be exposed sooner or later. He said that NC leadership would continue to serve people and make them aware of all conspiracies of BJP and PDP.
Others who spoke on the occasion include MLC Khalid Najeeb Sohrawardy District president Doda, Provincial Secretary Jammu Sheikh Bashir Ahmad, and Aslam Goni.
