Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Prof Saif-ud-Din Soz on Saturday said that "some people in New Delhi are not happy with his suggestion of reviving of Delhi Agreement."

"Some people from Delhi (not the politicians) phoned me during the last three days saying that all the things I had spoken in my press conference on August 30, were right except the idea of reviving the Delhi Agreement of 1952. They emphasized that the 'clock couldn't move backwards," Soz said in a statement.

"These people are not serious to acknowledge that there were so many assurances on record, even in recent times, like "Insaniyat, Kashmiriyat and Jamhoriyat; sky is the limit within the constitution of India," he said.  

"These people although not diehards were not prepared to appreciate me saying that "RSS-BJP spokesman Ram Madhav had vociferously declared only a couple of days ago, 'ask for the Moon, but within the constitution of India," he added. 

The senior Congress leader said that "however, finally, they heard me saying, 'I was wrong to imagine that somebody around this time in Delhi would be serious on what could fall within the four corners of the constitution," he said'.

"On the other hand, there are voices in Kashmir that clearly convey that something had been suggested by me in the said Press-Conference for which there were no takers in Kashmir.

But, then, a feeble voice I also heard was that I should show patience as time is a great healer. May be both sides understand better, finally.  Talks are good development for promoting dialogue and discussions in a democratic way," he said.
