New Delhi, Oct 25: BJP today distanced itself from the meeting between Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani and a delegation led by its leader Yashwant Sinha, saying the party has nothing to do with it.

"It is not a BJP delegation. BJP has nothing to do with this," its National Secretary Shrikant Sharma said.

A five-member civil society delegation led by the former Union Minister today met Geelani amid continuing volatile situation in the valley.

Some media outlets have said that it is a BJP delegation which is absolutely wrong, Sharma said, adding Sinha too maintained that he took up the enterprise in his personal capacity.

The other members of the delegation are Wajahat Habibullah, the former chairman of National Commission for Minorities, Kapil Kak, former Air Vice-Marshal, journalist Bharat Bhushan and Sushoba Barve of Centre for Dialogue and Reconciliation. They plan to meet other separatist leaders too.
