Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Monday said he hoped the central government, by announcing a peace initiative in Jammu and Kashmir, was finally admitting that its “muscular approach” to the Valley’s problems had failed. “With appointment of interlocutor, I hope government has finally admitted ‘muscular approach’ has failed in J&K,” Chidambaram tweeted after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said a sustained dialogue would be initiated by the government for a solution to the Kashmir issue.

Chidambaram, who as home minister in the UPA government had formed a three-member committee of interlocutors for a dialogue on Kashmir, said the movement from “No talks” to “Talks with all stakeholders” was a major victory for those who had argued for a political solution in Jammu and Kashmir.

Singh on Monday announced that former Intelligence Bureau director Dineshwar Sharma would be the central government’s representative for initiating a dialogue with all stakeholders in Jammu and Kashmir.

You have to give time to perform. you are all power hungry and apolitically unemployed , that is the reason. Your congress party has no right to talk on MODI performance. GST is not gabber singh tax. Shame of Rahul ji to talk like this

        Only iron can cut iron, only diamond can cut diamond likewise only kashmiri can solve Kashmir problem. Government should rehabilitate displaced kashmiri pandit with honour and respect back in kashmir and strengthen them with energy and security. If they want peace they will get it. If they want terror that also will be bestowed on them. No compromise word is there in Indian dictionary on Kashmir. P Chidambaram first save his son karthi, then think of advising on Kashmir.

          It is like Wood words baby gripe water adverti t. Even after another three generations the children will hear from their mother, g ma and great g ma the same thing -dialogue will be the only solution to the Kashmir problem.Waste of money of people.Bad politics. People of Kashmir lost lives. Great injustice done to our armed forces and their families for the present and future.Their souls are disgraced.This is not a maja and taking political pot shots by one party against and another. This nation will never be under peace because of J K. Thanks to Nehru and Congress legacy.
