"The criticism of the interlocutors at this stage is uncalled for as there is no reason for it. They are not to find a solution but to convey the message from all political shades and opinions in the state to the Centre and vice versa," stated Abdullah on Oct 21.
Reminding Home Minister, P Chidambaram's statement, Omar also added, "Kashmir is a political problem and will get a political solution. Let us give it a chance."
