Cong unhappy with PDP staying away from Kashmir all-party meet
New Delhi: Congress on Monday disapproved of the
PDP`s decision to stay away from an all-party meeting convened
by Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, saying the
mainstream parties should rise above politics, help restore
peace in the state and isolate the separatists.
"Every political party which considers itself in the
mainstream has to rise above politics and help restore peace
and isolate the separatists," party spokesman Manish Tewari
told reporters here.
Leaders of major political parties, including the ruling
National Conference, Congress, CPI-M and BJP, attended the
all-party meeting from which PDP and JK Panthers Party led by
Bhim Singh kept away. It deliberated on the current situation
in the Kashmir Valley.
Tewari said that from 1996 onwards, when democratic
process was recommenced in the state, democracy has been
broad-based and people have come in the mainstream.
He said it was incumbent on all political parties wedded
to democracy to strengthen the process and "help isolate the
separatists and miscreants".
