Panthers Party to attend PM`s meeting on Kashmir unrest
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers
Party (JKNPP) Sunday decided to attend the all-party meeting
convened by the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday to
discuss the situation in the Valley.
"The decision to attend the August 10 meeting was taken
on a special invitation from Prime Minister`s Office to the
party," JKNPP Chairman Bhim Singh said.
Expressing support for the PM`s initiative, Singh said
his party has always been in favour of initiation of a
political process in the state.
However, Singh made it clear that his party will not be a
part of the political delegation of the state as JKNPP skipped
the meeting convened by the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah last
The main opposition, PDP has already announced that it
will not attend the proposed meeting.
Leaders from various political parties including NC,
Congress, BJP and other one-man fronts are scheduled to meet
the Prime Minister to discuss the worsening situation in
Kashmir in which 50 people have so far been killed in police
and CRPF action since June 11.
