Jammu, Aug 23 (UNI) The first round of dialogue between the Shri Amarnath Yatra Sangharsh Samiti (SAYSS) and the Jammu and Kashmir government representatives ended here today after more than an one-hour long discussion with no results yet, as the members are likely to meet this afternoon again for talks and find out an amicable solution to the ongoing Amarnath land controversy.
''The dialogue with the Governor's panel started amidst a congenial atmosphere and they tabled some of the proposals before us, but it is too early to disclose them,'' Brigadier Suchet Singh, one of the constituents of the Sangharsh Samiti committee told reporters.
Brigadier Singh, however, said that the Samiti discussed nothing short of the restoration of land to the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB) with the panel appointed by Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra.
''We are hopeful of positive results as the next round of talks is likely to be held this afternoon with the state administration to find out solution to the prevailing situation and the land issue,'' one of the Samiti members told UNI.
S S Baeloria, Advisor to the Governor, said that the next meeting has been fixed with the Samiti, but the discussions could not be revealed at present before the final outcome.
The four-member committee of the Sangharsh Samiti was comprised of Tilak Raj Sharma, Pawan Kohli and Narinder Singh, led by Brigadier Singh, while the Governor's Panel included S S Bleoria, Vice-Chancellor of Jammu University Prof Amitabh Mattoo, former Judge of Jammu and Kashmir High Court Justice (Retd) G D Sharma and B B Vyas.
Earlier, the first phase of talks between the Governor and SAYSS on July 21 failed to break the deadlock.
