J&K: Karan Singh pitches for talks with Hurriyat leaders

Former Sadr-e-Riyasat and senior Congress leader Dr Karan Singh Friday said that after his interactions with cross section of society in Kashmir there is a demand that the Government of India must put up a strong defence of the Article 35 A before the Supreme Court.

“I met a lot of people including former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, incumbent Governor of Jammu and Kashmir NN Vohra and took careful note of the sentiments that were expressed regarding Article 35A. While senior government authorities have publicly assured that Kashmir’s sentiments in this matter will be respected, but the fact is that the final say will be of the Supreme Court and the government of India has not so far filed any affidavit,” he said.

“In my view, talks are to be welcomed, whether at the national, state or regional level, whether at Track One or Track Two, and some urgent initiatives need to be taken to start the process.”
