Patna: JD(U) on Thursday expressed reservations on appointment of apolitical figures as interlocutors for the dialogue process in Jammu and Kashmir, saying persons with "vast political experience" should be involved in such a sensitive issue.

"We are averse to appointment of three persons from non- political background for Jammu and Kashmir," JD(U) principal secretary K C Tyagi, who was earlier member of an all-party delegation to that state, told reporters here.

"People with vast political experience should be involved in the process of talks for a sensitive issue like Kashmir," he added.

The Union Home Ministry had yesterday appointed eminent journalist Dilip Padgaonkar, Information Commissioner M M Ansari and academician Radha Kumar as interlocutors for the dialogue process in Jammu and Kashmir.
