APHC not for autonomy
2 July 2000
SRINAGAR: The leader of All Parties Hurriyat Conference Mohammad Yaseen Malik Sunday said that autonomy was not what his organisation wanted. Terming the recently adopted autonomy resolution by the National Conference-dominated Jammu and Kashmir Assembly as of ''no consequences,'' Malik, who is also the Chairman of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), said the Indian government should strive towards a permanent solution of the Kashmir issue. While emphasising that the Hurriyat Conference was for talks, Malik said no pre-conditions should be attached to these. ''Everyone must come to the table with his own agenda,'' he said.
