Terming the decision a great move for confidence building in Kashmir, Mir said that the demand from political parties and the issue raised by CM for unilateral ceasefire during Ramadhan month would be great initiative for confidence building.

There is need that Govt of India should take proactive steps to reduce down the alienation .I welcome the cease fire announcement on behalf of the party and hope it is implemented in letter and spirit further I hope the militants will respond positively.
