Jammu: Panun Kashmir on Thursday demanded
immediate disbanding of the interlocutors` panel on Jammu and
Kashmir, alleging that their functioning was "shoddy, murky and
"We call upon Government of India to immediately disband
and cancel the appointment of interlocutors who have only
contributed towards keeping the separatist pot boiling in
the Jammu and Kashmir," Panun Kashmir chairman Ajay Chrungoo
said in a statement.
PK condemns the shoddy, murky and suspicious functioning
of the interlocutors, he said.
"By the contents of the (reported) resignation (by
interlocutor Radha Kumar) itself it is amply clear that the
most sensitive task of negotiations on Jammu and Kashmir has
been handed over to persons who have not abandoned their role
as lobbyists which they have been performing for decades at
the behest of one quarter or the other," Chrungoo alleged.
Kumar had attended a European Parliament conference on
Kashmir which was organised by the Tramboo Centre in 2006 in
Brussels. The Centre is run by Abdul Majeed Tramboo, a
barrister from the Valley, who is said to be under the scanner
for his association with the Pakistani establishment, ISI and
Ghulam Nabi Fai.
