SRINAGAR : BJP general secretary Ram Madhav today said the Centre’s interlocutor for Kashmir Dineshwar Sharma has the mandate to talk to everyone including the separatists.

“Whosoever will come forward, he (Sharma) can talk to him. He has that mandate…. You should ask this to the Hurriyat whether they are ready to talk,” Madhav told reporters here when asked whether the interlocutor would hold dialogue with the separatists.

Asked whether the interlocutor would also talk to Pakistan, the BJP leader said “this time, the announcement has been made that Sharma would talk with all groups in Jammu and Kashmir”.
