“Syed Ali Shah Geelani today said the all-party meet in New Delhi is unlikely to help improve the situation in the Kashmir Valley as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s speech did not touch on the core issue of Kashmir.
‘There was no mention of the bigger problem. I can’t see anything positive coming out of this meeting,’ Mr Geelani, who is spearheading the ongoing agitation in the valley, told PTI here.”
“‘Our protest programmes are peaceful. We are the sufferers of the violence and desire most for peace but it should be honourable and dignified,’ he said.
Mr Geelani said the peaceful struggle for achieving the goals in Kashmir will continue as the Centre has failed to respond to the conditions he had put forth for starting a dialogue for resolution of the Kashmir issue.”
