Jammu, Jul 31 (UNI) First round of talks between Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra and Shri Amarnath Yatra Sanagarsh Samiti (SAYSS) today failed to diliver result as it ended on a note to continue with the process for an amicable solution to the land row.
''The delegation did not talk on any other issue except restoration of forest land to Shri Amaranth Shrine Board (SASB),'' SAYSS delegate Tilak Raj Sharma told reporters.
''We handed over the copy of our demands to Mr Vohra in writing and now the administration has to decide, as it has been cleared that there is nothing short of the restoration of land to the Shrine Board that we want,'' he added.
Mr Sharma said the restoration of land to the Board would be the ground for talks and to discuss related issues regarding facilities to the Amarnath pilgrims.
He said the demands included only the restoration of land and an autonomous status to the Shrine Board.
However, further course of action would be decided after the administration gave its proposals in writings.
''If our demands are considered in their proposal, then we will be ready for a fresh dialogue with the administration, otherwise agitation will continue,'' Mr Sharma added.
Various political and non-political parties have appreciated the initiation talks between the SAYSS and the Governor.
