The waving of the Pakistani flag during separatist rallies in Jammu and Kashmir was not a new thing and had also happened in the past, a National Conference leader and former minister said here on Saturday.
National Conference on Saturday welcomed the diplomatic efforts by India and Pakistan for starting a fresh round of talks, saying that time was ripe for the neighboring countries to end hostility in the region.
National Conference on Saturday said the recommendations of the Joint Parliamentary Committee for the permanent settlement of west Pakistan refugees in Jammu and Kashmir is a "conspiracy" to change the demography of the state and its special status.
National Conference on Saturday said it was not an opportune time for the elections in Jammu and Kashmir as the state was reeling under the aftermaths of the devastating floods and decided to hold deliberations to work on the future course of action for the party.
Terming the militant attack on him as
an act of "cowardice", J&K minister Ali Mohammad
Sagar said such attempts by "enemies of peace" were made
to project an abnormal situation in the state but ruled out
any security lapse.
Proper use of land and its resources
in a scientific and systematic manner is imperative for making Jammu and Kashmir self-sufficient in agriculture produce,
Minister for Rural Development Ali
Mohammad Sagar said.
