Ongoing dialogue process a historic opportunity: JK Guv

Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Governor NN Vohra on Monday said agitation and confrontation cannot resolve outstanding issues and people of the state should participate in the ongoing dialogue process initiated by the Centre.

"People of all shades of opinion in Jammu and Kashmir should seize this historic opportunity of participating meaningfully in the ongoing dialogue for resolving all outstanding differences," Vohra said while addressing the joint session of both Houses of the state Legislature here today.

He said that agitation and confrontation cannot resolve issues and dialogue has been, and will always remain, the best means for seeking a solution to any contentious issue.

"Appointment of a team of interlocutors and the establishment of task forces for the Jammu and Ladakh regions has been welcomed," Vohra added.

About the rehabilitation policy for persons who had crossed over to PoK at the onset of terrorism and now wish to return home, Vohra said, "Government will help such persons in leading peaceful lives, rejoining national mainstream and contributing towards peace".
