Jammu: PDP patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on Thursday requested Prime Minister Manmohan Singh not to discontinue the efforts to improve bilateral ties with Pakistan in the wake of tension with the neighbouring country along the Line of Control (LoC).

"We urge Prime Minister not to abandon his Pakistan policy -- We express strong disapproval of measures that undermine the peace process," he said while addressing party members here.

"The recent developments have come as a severe setback to the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir," he said.

The move to suspend the implementation of new liberal visa regime and virtual deportation of Pakistan hockey players has sent negative signals to the people of Jammu and Kashmir, he said.

"Now people of the state area looking up to the Prime Minister to carry forward the peace process that has impacted our lives in a positive manner in the last ten years," the PDP leader said.
