GoI Would Implement K-report: Padgaonkar1 December 2011
New Delhi: Although six weeks have passed since they submitted their report on the political solution to the Kashmir problem, the chief interlocutor Dileep Padgonkar is very hopeful that Government of India (GoI) will implement their report. He said the implementation has to be done in a transparent manner. The three interlocutors - journalist Dileep Padgaonkar, academician Radha Kumar and former information commissioner MM Ansari – were appointed by GoI to find a political solution of Kashmir issue after 120 young persons died during summer agitation last year. The panel submitted its report, which was result of their year-long interaction with different section of society, to Home Minister P Chidambaram on October 12 this year. The interlocutors visited the State nearly 12 times and interacted with more than 700 delegations. However, all top separatist leaders including chairman of both factions of Hurriyat Conference boycotted the interlocutors and did not meet them. “We are quite hopeful that our report would be implemented,” chief interlocutor Padgaonkar told Rising Kashmir. He said it is true that recommendations of previous groups especially Working Groups were not implemented. “But I am sure that our report will be discussed in the All Party Delegation (APD) and later implemented as well,” he said. He said the implementation has to be done in a transparent manner.
