Srinagar: Hardline Hurriyat Conference on Thursday claimed that the government was not allowing peaceful political activities in Jammu and Kashmir and termed the appointment of interlocutors as an 'eyewash'.

"Home Minister P Chidambaram had talked about giving permission for peaceful political activities but nothing of the sort is visible on the ground as the government is not ready to provide political space," hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani said in a statement here.

Geelani said that "by not allowing peaceful political activities and also continued detention of political leaders have exposed that the appointment of interlocutors was just an eye-wash".
