Dineshwar Sharma meets J-K Governor, briefs about talks in Kashmir

Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir): Centre’s special representative of Jammu and Kashmir Dineshwar Sharma on Thursday met Governor N.N. Vohra at the Raj Bhavan.

Dineshwar Sharma is in the Valley for a dialogue process with various political parties, socio-cultural organisations, individuals and opinion makers including Governor N.N. Vohra and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

Sharma informed the Governor about his talks with various individuals and groups in the Valley and the major concerns which had been voiced by those he had met on his first visit to Kashmir.

Governor later suggested to Sharma that, notwithstanding any initial reservations in some groups, he must sustain the dialogue and hear one and all, particularly elements of the society who apparently held contrary convictions.

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Sharma said he had not succeeded in holding talks with the Hurriyat as of now.

“I have just come here so first give me some time. I have not succeeded in talking to the Hurriyat as of now,” he told the media.

Sharma had yesterday met a Congress delegation led by party leader Ghulam Ahmad Mir.

He also met former chief minister and National Conference (NC) leader Omar Abdullah and discussed the prevailing situation in the Valley. (ANI)
