Srinagar: Hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Wednesday virtually ruled out any move for unity with the moderate faction of the amalgam.

The Hurriyat hawk said those who think that the unity of the two Hurriyat Conference factions will put pressure on India to solve the Kashmir issue, are mistaken.

"For 10 years, we were together and India was not impressed," he said addressing a seminar organised by his Hurriyat faction here.

Geelani also demanded that the United Nations constitute a tribunal to look into incidents in Jammu and Kashmir over the past 63 years.

He lashed out at the ruling National Conference (NC) accusing it of being party to "oppression".
