Jammu: BJP leader and Union law minister Mr Arun Jaitley today said the dialogue process initiated by Mr LK Advani would move forward and the Centre would try to bring those who are outside the 'folds of Indian constitutions' into it. Mr Jaitley, who was addressing a press conference here this evening, was reacting on the comment of PDP chief Ms Mehbooba Mufti, who had yesterday asked the Centre to initiate dialogue with the Hizbul Mujahideen. Mr Jaitley said the 'appointed authority' had taken note of the statement and would think over it. Firing yet another salvo against the Congress, the BJP leader said the 'rag-tag alliance' could not manage the complexities of 'world's largest democracy'.
