2-day working committee meeting of NC to discuss RT Conference
Srinagar, May 13 (UNI) Just ahead of Round Table Conference called by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on May 25 here on Kashmir issue, the main opposition party in the state, National Conference (NC) has called a two-day working committee meeting from May 23 to discuss its stand.
We have called a two-day meeting where leaders will express their views freely on the party's stand on Kashmir issue, the NC president and former Union Minister of State for External Affairs Omar Abdullah said here today.
He said the meeting will provide an opportunity to leaders to share their views on the issue before participating in the Round Table Conference.
Mr Abdullah said the NC will present its point of view how to resolve the Kashmir issue once and for all pecefully.
Urging separatists to participate in the conference, he said this is an opportunity which should not be missed.
''You are participating in conference on Kashmir in Pakistan, holding talks with Pakistan president Parvez Musharraf and having closed door meeting with Prime Minister Dr Singh in New Delhi'', Mr Omar said to separatists adding that there is no harm in attending the Round Table Conference.
He said the conference, being held in their 'own land', provides an opportunity to them (separatists) to put their point of view on the Kashmir issue.
Besides both the factions of the Hurriyat Conference (HC), majority separatist organisations, including Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) and Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) boycotted the last Round Table Conference held in New Delhi last month.
However, a six member HC delegation led by Mirwaiz Moulvi Omar Farooq had a meeting with Prime Minister.
