Leaders to converge in Jammu for seminar on Kashmir
26 March 2006
Jammu: Leaders from all parts of the state representing diverse opinions are likely to converge in Jammu on Tuesday to carry forward the debate on ways to resolve the vexed Kashmir issue.
Leaders of separatist organisations like Hurriyat Conference and Democratic Freedom Party and main-stream parties like National Conference, Peoples Democratic Party, CPM and Congress have been invited for the two-day conference National Seminar on Building Peace in J&K: Challenges and Opportunities.
Non-political groups of Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh and some social scientists will also attend the two-day conference. Vohra will present New Delhi's View.
The participants will debate on various dimensions of the problem and its solution like the peace process, conflict in J&K, politics of peace and economy of peace.
The conclave is significant as it precedes the second roundtable on Kashmir to be chaired by the Prime Minister. The roundtable is slated to be held in the last week of May in Srinagar.
Preparations for the roundtable will also be discussed by vohra separately with Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad during his stay in Jammu. The first roundtable was attended by over 80 representatives of political parties.
