New Delhi, Sep 15: The all-party meeting on Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday, Sep 15, leaders have failed again to arrive at a consensus on partial withdrawal or revocation of the contentious Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA).

The meeting convened by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, agreed that the delegation should meet all sections of the people and gather all shades of opinion, which will be headed by Home Ministry and the Jammu and Kashmir government.

After the visit the government will take into consideration at the meeting and take initiatives to reach out to the people. “The feedback received from the all-party delegation would form an important input into the government's evolving response on various issues relating to Jammu and Kashmir," said a statement issued after the meeting, which lasted five-and-half hours.

The meeting agreed that the “Constitution of India provides ample scope to accommodate any legitimate political demand through dialogue, civil discourse and peaceful negotiations."
