J&K integral part of India: Omar

KL Report


Laying emphasis upon dialogue once again the J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Monday stressed that Jammu and Kashmir as an integral part of India as it has acceded to India, but required a treatment to resolve the political crisis within the state.

Speaking to media after inaugurating the Civil Secretariat office in the state’s winter capital, Abdullah said that Jammu and Kashmir had already acceded to India and was the country’s integral part.

“Jammu and Kashmir had already acceded to India and was the country’s integral part yet it requires a political treatment so that peace can be resorted,” Omar said while answering a question.

When asked about his recent remarks resolving the ‘Kashmir issue’ on the pattern of an arrangement in Northern Ireland, Omar said, “There were many proposals from different quarters, National Conference had its proposal, Congress has its own, PDP had its own and BJP too has its own model.”

All such proposals should be sent to centre for discussions, he said, adding, “Dialogue is the only way of resolving the Kashmir imbroglio.”

Meanwhile, replying a query he criticized the separatists in valley for not participating in the dialogue process with New Delhi. Once again inviting separatists to dialogue table, he said, “It is them (separatists) who have to decide but we can’t force them to sit across the table.”

To a question regarding ‘Modi wave’, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said it would be wrong to say there is a ‘Modi wave’ but he (Modi) has some affect in the elections.
