Recall Kashmir Interlocutors: Panthers Party Chief3 November 2010
Mumbai: Panthers Party chief Bhim Singh demanded that the Centre recall the three musketeers who were dispatched to Jammu and Kashmir as interlocutors. Singh said he has urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to recall the three interlocutors as 'they have created more mess in J&K than the Hurriyat Conference.' 'We don't need interlocutors,' the National Integration Council member told reporters here. Singh said he has written to the PM, saying the interlocutors have no role to play in the state's affairs. The Centre should initiate action against Chief Minister Omar Abudullah for his controversial speech raising questions on the valley's merger with India, he said. Singh demanded imposition of Governor's Rule in Jammu and Kashmir for bringing peace in the state and asked the Congress to withdraw support from National Conference. Governor's Rule should be imposed in J&K to bring peace in the valley and the Centre should initiate action against CM Omar Abudullah for his controversial speech raising questions on the valley's merger with India. Section 3 of the J&K Constitution clearly states that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and shall remain and integral part of India, Singh said. 'The Line of Control (LoC) is the only issue we have to discuss with Pakistan and it can be settled bilaterally as proposed in the Shimla and Tashkent accords,' he said.
