Srinagar, Jan 27: Former union minister Saifuddin Soz on Sunday urged Governor Satya Pal Malik to initiate a dialogue with the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) in Kashmir and said the solution of Kashmir dispute is dialogue only.
“I would earnestly suggest the Governor to initiate a dialogue with the separatists which is being specifically represented by the JRL. Governor Malik could serve a great purpose for the country if he ensures the suggested dialogue, at the earliest,” Soz, a senior Congress leader, said.
In a statement issued here, Soz said he would like to emphasize that the general run of Kashmiris understands how to find a way out of the current situation of unrest.
“Governor Satya Pal Malik continuously advises Kashmiris on various matters of public importance. The understandable proposition is that there exists a dispute and the solution to that can be found through a purposeful dialogue. Any other solution is a ‘one-sided phenomenon’ and not workable in Kashmir,” Soz said.
Soz said governor Malik in his first statement on arrival in Kashmir had himself offered to open a dialogue with the people of Kashmir.
