Srinagar: The Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Thursday said the proposal to hold a non-governmental conference in Delhi is an attempt to seek a “unified voice” on resolving unrest in the Kashmir valley, news agency ANI reported.
Yechury told ANI, “Our attempt will be to make it an all-party Kind of gathering. We all should take initiative to solve the problem of Kashmir. We are inviting all experts and members of different delegation which have visited Kashmir. We are exploring the possibility of inviting some political leaders and experts from Kashmir.”
Yechury also said he had a conversation with former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah and also met Prime Minister Narendra to discuss this issue, the report added.
Janata Dal-United’s Sharad Yadav said, “All those who are worried about the current situation of the Kashmir valley will together very soon hold a conference to address the problems of the state.”
BJP leader Yashwant Sinha and Yadav met on Sunday to chalk out plans to bring together different groups working on Kashmir for a national conclave this month, the report said.
