Geelani against holding talks with all-party delegation

Srinagar: Hardline Hurriyat Conference leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani today asked “all stakeholders” to refrain from meeting the all-party delegation led by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh which is scheduled to arrive here on Sunday.

The 28-member all-party delegation is slated to hold interactions with various sections in the wake of the latest wave of violence in Kashmir that has left 69 people dead.

In a statement, the Hurriyat hawk said such an exercise would be meaningless as the lawmakers have not recognised Kashmir as a dispute.
