Indo-Pak must hold talks for normalcy in valley: Farooq Abdullah
Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah on Friday said that India-Pakistan must hold talks with each other to put a stop on the increasing terrorism as it is affecting normalcy in the Kashmir valley.
“I only want peace in the Kashmir valley,” said Farooq Abdullah.
Farooq, when asked about the sacrifices of Indian Army jawans in the Uri terror attack, said, “I am not here to discuss the government. I don't have anything to do with Uri. I am here to find a way forward.
"When former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee can reach out to Pakistan for peace why can't we speak to our own people,” questioned Abdullah.
Abdullah urged the central and state government for internal dialogue along with separatists.
Farooq Abdullah also demanded the government to release separatist leaders who are jailed since the unrest in the Kashmir valley had begun. It could be mentioned here that Hizbul Mujahideen chief Burhan Wani was gunned down by the army men on July 8 after which ignited the unrest in Kashmir.
