Ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP), leader Rafi Ahmad Mir Sunday said that there can be no alternative to talks for resolving the unrest in Kashmir.
Rafi, while addressing a day long convention of party workers in South Kashmir’s Khanabal area said that PDP’s core agenda of talks with all stakeholders is being pursued by the party at all levels so that tensions may ease across the borders.
Reiterating that PDP’s vision to have dialogue with all stake holders to help resolve the Kashmir issue had changed the dynamics of politics and led mass involvement of youth in mainstream politics.
“Today there is a dire need for the centre to follow that model again,” the PDP leader said.
Mir said that Mufti Mohammad Sayeed had envisioned a state where difference of opinion and ideology would be democratically accommodated.
Mir emphasised upon the party workers to reach out to general public and involve them in democratic process and evolve consensus upon imperative need of achieving peace in the society.
Underlining the importance of agenda of alliance, Mir said that it’s a historic opportunity for both the parties, PDP and BJP to ensure that they can make the achievable roadmap a success.
“Despite the two parties following different ideologies, they can work on the road map and turn it into a reality,” he said.
He lauded the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti for her efforts to transform governance and trying to achieve a stable and peaceful atmosphere in the state.
