Srinagar: Demanding the resumption of talks between India and Pakistan, opposition PDP on Monday held a massive protest march here for the resolution of the Kashmir issue.
Amidst slogans of `Manmohan-Gilani pehal karo` (initiate talks PM Manmohan Singh and Gilani), party president Mehbooba Mufti urged the two leaders to resume talks.
The party was "highly perturbed by obvious lack of urgency in resolving the issue of Jammu and Kashmir through peaceful means," she said.
She also appealed the separatists and other parties to join hands for a resolution on the issue.
"This is not an election battle.. We as well as those who want independence are yearning for resolution of Kashmir issue, revocation of armed forces special powers act, demilitarisation, release of prisoners and rights on water resources," she added.
However, Mehbooba did not miss the chance to flay the ruling National Conference.
"NC always sabotaged efforts aimed at resolution of Kashmir issue. The party is power hungry...," she alleged, while referring to the National Conference`s poll boycott for 22 years.
Earlier, police tried to stop the march outside PDP
headquarters at various places but party workers broke the
cordon and marched nearly one kilometre.
