Omar: Why no talks with J&K stakeholders
SRINAGAR: National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has questioned the Centre’s participation in a dialogue on Afghanistan in the presence of Taliban representatives while holding no talks with stakeholders in Jammu and Kashmir.
“If ‘non-official’ participation in a dialogue that includes the taliban is acceptable to the Modi government why not a non-official dialogue with non-mainstream stake holders in J&K? Why not a non-official dialogue centered around J&K’S eroded autonomy & its restoration?” he tweeted Thursday night. The Moscow-format meeting on Afghanistan will be held on November 9 and representatives of the Afghan Taliban radical movement will take part in it, the Russian Foreign Ministry had said last week.
