New Delhi, Aug 12: The all party meeting on the Jammu and Kashmir issue will take a final call on whether to bring the likes of the Hurriyat Conference on board to find a solution to the unrest in the state. The all party meet to be held on Friday will stress for a dialogue with all stake holders in Kashmir including the Hurriyat.
The all party meet is likely to press for including all stake holders in J&K so that peace is restored in the state. The Hurriyat Conference and the Joint Resistance Group has already issued a calendar which speaks about more protests in the Valley.
Sources say that if all are brought on board for the talks then such calendars will not be issued and that would ensure peace in the Valley, which has been on the boil since July 8-the day Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist, Burhan Wani was killed.
All party to decide
The decision to bring all stake holders on board to talk peace would depend on the decision taken by the all party meeting. Even during the meeting between J&K, Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti and Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh the former had suggested bringing in all stake holders for talks.
Further Mehbooba had also suggested that the Vajpayee model for J&K be invoked which speaks about- insaniyat, jamhooriyat and Kashmiriyat. The PDP which is in an alliance with the BJP too has been pressurising the centre to hold talks with the separatists.
Following a series of meetings, the Centre too is of the opinion that only talks can solve the problem.
Sources say that the Centre is willing to explore all options to restore peace in the Valley. The Centre is however, clear that engaging with Pakistan on this issue is not an option. Rajnath Singh had said in Parliament that India will talk to Pakistan only on PoK. Kashmir remains our internal matter he had also said.
Even if the all party meeting decides that talks will be held with the separatists, it would still require a lot of ground work before the real process starts. Interlocutors will begin the back channel process to understand the mood and also demands of the separatists.
Further the J&K government too will play a very big part in this process. Only after this process is completed will the formal process of talks commence, official sources further informed.
