"The state and central governments have to take the political dialogue forward now. There will be no solution without a political dialogue. You have to start a political dialogue, an unconditional political with all stakeholders," Yechury said.

CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury on Monday urged the government to start an “unconditional dialogue” with all stakeholders, including separatists, for peace in Kashmir that is battling nearly two months of the deadliest unrest in years.

“The state and central governments have to take the political dialogue forward now. There will be no solution without a political dialogue. You have to start a political dialogue, an unconditional political with all stakeholders,” Yechury told the media here.

Yechury spoke a day after some leaders from the all-party delegation of MPs, who had gone to meet separatist leaders, were snubbed.

Separatists refused to talk to the MPs who had gone in their individual capacity and not as a part of the delegation from Delhi.

The CPI-M leader, who was one of the MPs to try to meet Hurriyat leaders, said it was not a snub. “They met us. Only one (Syed Ali Shah Geelani) didn’t. However, they refused to speak on the Kashmir issue,” Yechury said.

The team from Delhi met some 200 people of 30 delegations, including mainstream regional political parties, on the first day of its Kashmir visit.

The situation in the Valley continues to be tense amid recurring street protests, triggered by the July 8 killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani. At least 74 people have been killed and nearly 12,000 injured in the weeks of the unrest, the deadliest since 2010 when some 120 people died in firing by police and paramilitary troopers.

      This person Mr.Yechuri has really lost his brain. What does he mean by political solution? Does not the consution of India does not include how the elections are to be held and how power is to be shared? Does he think that there exists political solution beyond consution? What rubbish he is talking? It is time fellows like him first to listen and understand what the rest of country wants. The onus of uaging the hurt feelings of rest of Indians who sacrificed by way of men and material for the people of Kashmir for having been let down. Let these opposition fellows who claim to be leaders understand this simple fact.

        Dear Sir, By all stake holders means,you also include the Pandits who were ( specifically I have used were and not are,) are the sons of soil of Kashmir. When those helpless people were driven out mercilessly by the other party during 80s what your comrades were doing? Or what is your stand now as far as those people are concerned?.Do not playnpolitics with your words

            After some days Sitaram Yechury, MP from Rajya sabha may suggest to have a dialogue with stan over Kashmir issue.For him nothing to lose as his Party other than Kerala will never ever come to power including WB where it ruled more than 25 years and then uprooted badly by Mamata Banerjee. Separatists refused to meet him while he was in valley for two days when he was advocating to have dialogue with them.His any suggestion lacks National interest and impracticable to implement.

              Mr Sita Ram Yechuri ( this atheist with incorrectly named with 2 very pious Hindu names) could not even meet separatists to talk with them by standing in front of their houses. And he is advising government to talk to them. Mr Yechuri is forgetting that these traitors are on Pak (or some other foreign countries payroll) for doing what they are doing. For these terrorists talk does not mean any thing.

                  Can the central Govt say that they will not hold talk with hurriyat under any conditions. The policy of this Govt. with regard to stan and Hurriyat is very confusing and unclear.

                      Joker yechuri, you tried your unconditional talks with those stani agents. What did you get except a slap on your face? Now you want to preach to govt? We, people of India, taught you a hard lesson in 2014 elections. Now go and rest in piece somewhere far away. Dont interfere in our matters. Not wanted.

                          It is advised Sita Ram Yechuri not to talk more on Kashmir issue.There are many topics he can talk when Rajya Sabha Session is on and get cheap publicity .His any advice to govt is not in the interest of Nation or solve any problem except create more problem to Govt in power .He wants to be in limelight either by supporting opponents of Govt or Separatist elements within country or outside.It was really mistake of HM Rajnath Singh to include him in his delegation to Kashmir Valley.His every stance on any issue whether it is in Rajya Sabha or in public is always against Govt whether it is UPA or NDA Govt short he has only nuisance value in Indian Politics and nothing more.

                                Yachury's lack of wisdom in politics shown ignorance and immaturity. What he wanted to talk to those who are enemy of the state. No talk just bullet now and if yachury don't understand and makes a browny point give him from point blank. People like him are main cause of kashmir trouble.

                                  If people of India wanted your guidance, you would have been voted in power. Left has done nothing but destabilized and hampered our progress.

                                    the last fight to exist for the communists of India. Most of the members of state and central houses were from a coalition and they did not win this time by getting mandate directly. Their actions are like the street dogs running for left overs of the food after the party is over. Its just time before the communism and communists(hypocrites) are down to ashes!

                                      Indian public is now well aware of your designs, that is why left is being gradually marginalized.

                                        Leftists will scratch every fault line of Indian polity just to keep it embroiled in one problem or other. We really don't need you and your advice.

                                          What does unconditional mean? Unlike you, most of us Indians feel that we do have a stake in India.

                                            Obviously Yechury is speaking what he is told to speak either by China or Russia.
