Interlocutors Creating Confusion: Kamal21 December 2010
Srinagar: The ruling coalition National Conference Tuesday accused the interlocutors of creating confusion in Kashmir. “Interlocutors are only creating confusion. The recent meetings held by the interlocutors prove my point. Instead of meeting with representatives of public, they are directly talking to the people. Such moves will only create confusion among masses,” senior NC leader and Member Legislative Assembly, Dr Mustafa Kamal told local news gathering agency KNS. Known for his firebrand statements, Dr Kamal is the brother of NC president Dr Farooq Abdullah and uncle of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah. Speaking on the NC’s autonomy proposal, Kamal declared it was complete and takes into consideration aspirations of the people in all the three regions - Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. “We even presented it before the All Party Delegation,” he said. “Our autonomy report has been ratified and passed by assembly. So it is complete in every respect.” Kamal also invited Awami National Conference to join NC. “Nothing changed despite ANC contesting elections. Even there is not a single MLA representing them,” Kamal said and added that ANC leadership must join back NC. He suggested ANC to not to play in the hands of Delhi and accept the hard truth that the NC’s autonomy proposal is the real solution for the Kashmir problem. “Our proposal has a history and context,” Kamal said. “Nothing has come out from intra Kashmir dialogue, neither ANC would gain from such futile exercises. So it is better for them to join us,” he said.
