Talking to reporters on the sidelines of the function here at party headquarters, Mir, according to news agency—KNO, said people across Jammu and Kashmir are anguished over the decision taken by the government three days back.

He said after taking the unconstitutional decision in August last year,  the government on record assured on the floor of the house that the land in J&K will be protected, but they betrayed the people here by repealing the land law a few days ago.

He added to fight against this particular decision, there was a dire need to come up with a common platform in J&K.

Asked about the already existing alliance by the mainstream leaders, Mir said he couldn’t attend the meetings as on the first meet, he was not keeping well, adding he was not in Srinagar when the second meeting was called and didn’t get the sufficient time to reach in the meeting.

He further added that Congress and the existing alliance of mainstream leaders have many common agendas and decisions taken in August last year is the main common agenda. “We are part of these common agendas. But there can be differences in the language being used while fighting for the cause,” he added.
