General secretary of ruling Peoples Democratic Party Peerzada Mansoor Hussain on Saturday welcomed the decision of the government to free the separatist leaders in Kashmir. He reiterated that "democracy is a battle of ideas with little space for any coercion or confrontation."

Addressing a rally at Budgam, Hussain pitched for the resumption of Indo-Pak dialogue process, stating that the thaw between the two countries is inevitable for everlasting peace and stability in South Asia.

The PDP leader added that it is high time for India and Pakistan to come forward and evolve consensus so that the people of Kashmir who are bearing the brunt of arch rivalry between the two countries could prosper and scan new horizons of tranquillity and peace sans any further delay. 

Appealing Syed Ali Shah Geelani to play role in stopping the mayhem and bloodshed in Kashmir, the PDP general secretary said the youth of the state must be guided in a proper way so that their valuable talent could be channelized in a proper direction. "The precious lives of youth attain more significance than anything else for us. Jobs, growth and development would only be possible if youth are allowed to live with honour and dignity. I appeal Syed Ali Geelani to play a vital role and become part of the dialogue process so that state that could be saved from treading towards the brink of destruction and chaos," he said.

He also appealed the youth to understand the value of their lives and importance of their being. "The youth of the state have proven their abilities in all fields across the globe. They must learn to demand their rights within the system. I can assure them with certainty that sky is going to be a limit for their success then," Mansoor said.

He added that people of Jammu and Kashmir have been witnessing the mayhem and destruction due to the blunders committed by the leadership of National Conference.  Mansoor said that the same leadership which promised green pastures to the people threw them into middle of uncertainty and exposed them to the worst times the state of Jammu and Kashmir ever witnessed in history. "Even before Maharaja Hari Singh signed accord of accession with the Union of India on October 26, 1947, it was Sheikh Abdullah who two months before – in August, 1947  passed a unanimous party resolution that declared Kashmir as India's integral part that too without any conditions," PDP general secretary said in his address.
