#Day30: Modi Government To Initiate Talks With Hurriyat Conference?



The right wing Union government led by Pm Narendra Modi has decided to initiate talks with Kashmiri separatists “in a bid to quell the ongoing uprising” in the state.

The government intends to hold talks with all stakeholders including Hurriyat in the Valley, India Today reported on Sunday.

Meanwhile, curfew and restrictions continued to be imposed in most places in Kashmir on Sunday to contain violence and protests, leaving the valley paralysed for the 30th consecutive day.

Curfew will continue in Islamabad, Kulgam, Shopian, Pulwama and Kupwara towns while restrictions will remain in force in Srinagar city, Budgam, Sopore, Bandipora and Baramulla towns, the report said.

Separatists have already extended their protest shutdown till August 12.

The separatists have been issuing weekly protest calendars since the current uprising was triggered in the valley on July 9, a day after popular Hizbul commander Burhan Wani was killed by forces.

At least 57 civilians have been killed by forces and over 6000 injured.

All educational institutions including schools, colleges and universities as well as public transport and business establishments have remained closed.

Skeletal staff has been managing banks, post offices and government offices during this period. All separatist leaders have detained in Srinagar.
