Jammu: Asking the separatists to become a
part of the talks process by utilising the institution of
interlocutors, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah
Wednesday said they should make use of the present conducive
atmosphere of dialogue in a positive manner to address
political issues.

"Main ummeed karta hoon ki aap jald-az-jald muzaqarat
ka hissa ban kar riyaasat kay pur-aman aur khushgawar
mustaqbil ke zamin banein (I hope that you will become the
part of dialogue and contribute for better future of the
State)," Omar told the separatists.

In an address to the people on the occasion of
Republic Day, Omar called for utilising the present conducive
atmosphere of dialogue in a positive manner to address
political issues of Jammu and Kashmir.

"The institution of interlocutors created by the Union
government to initiate interaction with all shades of opinion
should be utilised earnestly to find a solution to the
issues," he said while appealing to the separatists to rise to
the occasion and play their role in bringing about peace and
tranquillity in the state.

The Chief Minister reminded the people of the loss of
precious lives and property during the period of militancy
and the five months of summer unrest last year and said that
violence has never solved any problem.

"Zinda aur bashaoor komain apnay masa-ill hamesha
pur-aman taur par hal karne kay khahan rehti hain (The brave
and lively societies resolve their issues amicably in a
peaceful atmosphere)," he said and called for joint efforts
for peace and welfare of the state.
