Omar-led delegation seeks dialogue, ban on pellets

Srinagar: Opposition parties on Monday demanded an immediate ban on pellet guns and requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to open hold dialogue with stakeholders in Kashmir.

Led by former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah, the eight-member delegation met Modi in the morning to discuss the situation in the Valley, where 68 people have been killed by the government forces in the ongoing uprising.

“We are of the firm opinion that the central government should waste no further time in initiating a credible and meaningful political dialogue with all stakeholders to address the unrest in the state,” said a memorandum submitted by the delegation.
