Srinagar, Apr 7 (UNI) Rejecting any external interference, Jammu and Kashmir Social Welfare Minister Abdul Gani Vakil said solution to Kashmir issue lies in political discourse within India.
''No external power will be allowed to interfere in our internal affairs'', he said at a public meeting at Repan in Rafiabad.
He said the Congress party favours involvement of all political parties.
''Everybody in a democratic set up is free to express his views but that expression should not reflect opinion of external forces'', he said and added that people and their representatives were the only stakeholders of peace and development in Jammu and Kashmir.
Mr Vakil said state Vigilance Organization was mobilised with strong legal back up for rooting out graft and purge administration from unscrupulous elements.
He said government also succeeded in safeguarding human rights in the state.
Security forces were sensitised and directed to avoid harassment of innocent civilians while combating militancy. This, he said, has resulted in the remarkable reduction in rights' violation.
