Victory for those who argued for political solution: Chidambaram on Kashmir interlocutor

Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Monday said he hoped the central government, by announcing a peace initiative in Jammu and Kashmir, was finally admitting that its “muscular approach” to the Valley's problems had failed.

“With appointment of interlocutor, I hope government has finally admitted 'muscular approach' has failed in J&K,” Chidambaram tweeted after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said a sustained dialogue would be initiated by the government for a solution to the Kashmir issue.

Chidambaram, who as home minister in the UPA government had formed a three-member committee of interlocutors for a dialogue on Kashmir, said the movement from "No talks" to "Talks with all stakeholders" was a major victory for those who had argued for a political solution in Jammu and Kashmir. PTI
