No limiting factor for Kashmir talks: Sayeed
21 April 2006
Srinagar: Disagreeing with Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad's assertion that there would be no talks with gun-wielding militants, former Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on Friday said the dialogue process on Kashmir must be expanded in its scope and strengthened in its content. 'There should be no limiting factor in involving all parties concerned in finding a lasting solution to the problems of Jammu and Kashmir,' Sayeed said, addressing a public rally at Pattan. Azad, addressing a function here on April 17, termed the talks between the BJP-led NDA government and militants in 2000 as a 'shame on democracy.' He said the dialogue process started by the NDA Government was a path-breaking initiative.
