Civil society angry over late response to proposal of grand alliance

Srinagar, Nov 22: Jammu and Kashmir Civil Society Coordination Committee comprising Muzafar Ahmad Shah, Advocate Mir Javed and Jagmohan Singh Raina has voiced its anguish over the late response to a proposal which it had put up before Mehbooba Mufti, the PDP president and Omar Abdullah, the National Conference vice president for formation of a secular government in Jammu and Kashmir.
Talking to a news agency, member J&K Civil Society Coordination Committee Muzafar Ahmad Shah said that Mehbooba Mufti was convinced over the proposal for a grand alliance for defending article 35-A but sorry to say that National Conference vice president and former chief minister Omar Abdullah delayed a meeting after fixing the time and venue for discussing the proposal of a grand alliance for formation of a secular government to defend Article 35-A and stop tinkering with the laws concerning special status of Jammu and Kashmir.
Saying that instead of sending fax, the leaders of all the three parties should have personally flew to Jammu and dropped at Raj Bhavan to handover letter for staking claim for government formation with supporting letters from National Conference and Congress. (KNS)
