Jammu and Kashmir state unit of CPI(M) today called for release of all separatist leaders from detention to facilitate their talks with the visiting All-Party delegation (APC) on Sunday.
"The state government must not miss this opportunity and facilitate the meeting of the separatist leaders with the All-Party delegation and for that all those leaders who are under detention, must be released," said CPI(M) leader and MLA Kulgam, M Y Tarigami.
Tarigami said a formal invite must also be sent to the separatists.
"A formal letter of invitation must be sent to the leaders of the separatist camp as well," he said.
He said CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury also raised the matter in today's meeting of the members of the delegation which was convened by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
"Yechury raised the issue in the meeting that all shades of the separatist leadership must be approached to meet the visiting delegation," Tarigami said.
