Mehbooba welcomes Rajnath’s offer to engage stakeholders

Mehbooba said she has reiterated it time and again that dialogue is the only way forward for resolving issues as violence has lost its relevance in the contemporary world besides taking a heavy toll of the people and the societies.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday welcomed the assertion of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh that Centre was ready to talk to every stakeholder including the Hurriyat Conference in the state if it comes to the table.

Singh made these remarks in an interactive session with a television channel on Saturday.

In a statement, the chief minister described it as a welcome step to initiate dialogue and reconciliation in the state.

She said that given the positive outcome from the ground on the Ramazan ceasefire, the peace constituency in the country and the state should feel encouraged to start the much-needed process of peaceful engagement with all stakeholders in the state.

The chief minister hoped that parties and groups like Hurriyat Conference will seize the opportunity and show their responsibility towards the people of the state by displaying the much-needed maturity so that the opportunity is not wasted.

She said a peaceful engagement among all the stakeholders in the state is urgently needed to get Jammu & Kashmir out of the unending cycle of violence and provide its people, a secure, prosperous and peaceful future.

Mehbooba said she has reiterated it time and again that dialogue is the only way forward for resolving issues as violence has lost its relevance in the contemporary world besides taking a heavy toll of the people and the societies.

She said even arch-rival nations like the US and North Korea and North Korea and South Korea ultimately had to take to the table to iron out their mutual issues.
