New Delhi, Feb 25: The Jammu and Kashmir Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) today (Feb 25, 2006) suggested evolving a credible mechanism to carry forward the dialogue on Kashmir and demanded that more momentum be given to the India-Pakistan peace process.

Jammu and Kashmir CPM leader Mohommad Yousuf Tarigami, who was participating in Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's roundtable conference on Kashmir, told reporters after today's meeting that no one should expect ready-made solutions from the meet. "However the process is important." He said the considered position of his party on Jammu and Kashmir was a greater degree of regional autonomy. "We have suggested that Jammu and Kashmir be converted into a federation and dilutions made in Article 370 rectified." Expressing regret at the non-participation of separatist leaders in the roundtable, Mr Tarigami said this was an opportunity for them and they should have attended the meet.

There could be agreements and disagreements but it is not the end of the game.

"The Hurriyat and the separatists can join later and the application of force will not lead us anywhere. Dialogue is important," he added.
