Kulgam (JK): CPI(M) Jammu and Kashmir Secretary M Y Tarigami on Thursday called for evolving commonalities between all political forces in the state including separatists for finding an amicable solution to the Kashmir issue.

"For this purpose, mainstream as well as separatist leadership need to develop consensus by converging at common formula and convince both India and Pakistan to resolve the tangle once and for all," Tarigami said.

He said divergent view points and drifting policies would not yield anything except miseries and hardships to people.

The communist leader was addressing a public rally here, 75 km from Srinagar, after leading party activists in a protest march against unemployment, shortage of essential commodities, erratic power supply and other public issues.

Tarigami said there was a need for consolidating internal Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) and liberalising trade and travel across the Line of Control (LoC).

"It is imperative to universalise the scope of these vital CBMs by putting in place communication and banking facilities and allowing cultural, sports and educational exchange programmes across the two divided parts of the State," he said.
