'Change in Hurriyat's stand welcome development'

Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik has welcomed Hurriyat’s response to government’s plan to ensure smooth return of Kashmiri Pandits.

“This is a welcome development and reflects change in the Hurriyat’s stand and policy. They have welcomed our plans of bringing back the Kashmiri Pandits. And perhaps for the first time, Hurriyat didn’t call for a shutdown on the visit of Union Home Minister to Kashmir,” Governor Malik said.
