Srinagar, August 17: The National Conference (NC) has called a meeting of opposition parties in Srinagar on Wednesday to discuss the unabated violence and killing of civilians in action by armed forces.
NC’s General Secretary, Ali Mohammad Sagar said, “NC Working President and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has convened the meeting which will hold wider consultations on the “failure” of the PDP-BJP government in bringing an end to the violence and restoring peace.”
The meeting will be attended by state leaders who were not invited to the all-party meeting on Kashmir chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Only parties having representation in parliament were invited to the meeting.
National Conference had boycotted the all-party meeting called by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on July 22, a fortnight after unrest erupted in the Valley following Wani’s death.
The meeting will take place at the residence of NC President Dr Farooq Abdullah.
