PDP leader calls for talks with Pak, separatists

Srinagar: A senior leader of the ruling PDP in Jammu and Kashmir Thursday urged the New Delhi to address the issues troubling the state by resuming dialogue with “all the stakeholders” including separatists, and with Pakistan.
New Delhi must address issues concerning the state with a sense of urgency, sincerity and seriousness by resuming talks “not only with Pakistan, but with all the stakeholders, within the state as well, including the separatists,” PDP leader Peerzada Mansoor said at a party convention in south Kashmir.
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rules Jammu and Kashmir in alliance with Bharatiya Janata Party.
Mansoor said besides working through political means and implementing an economic development agenda, the central government must engage with the people of the state to find a lasting solution to the issues confronting Jammu and Kashmir. PTI
