Geelani asked people to contribute towards Tehreek-e-Hurriyat, the separatist organisation founded by him.
The Hurriyat chairman said his separatist amalgam would soon start consultations with other separatists to build a “national consensus” over the issue.
In October 2010, he was arrested after police raids across Kashmir. Since then, he has been behind bars.
Several panchayat members revealed their decision at Srinagar’s press enclave Monday, where they were protesting against the government.
Geelani made his first departure from a hardline stand during protests over the Amarnath land transfer in 2008.
BJP dared Geelani either to substantiate his claims or apologise to the country.
With BJP denying Geelani’s claims, Omar said the easiest way to find out the truth was to identify the emissaries.
BJP denies Geelani’s claim that Modi sent emissaries to meet him for resolving the Kashmir issue.
Geelani, who arrived from New Delhi on April 16, said the BJP was sure that Modi would be the next prime minister of India.
He appealed to the people to observe a complete shutdown on April 21 against the random arrest and curbs on separatist leaders.
The court said the offence did not fall in its jurisdiction and the probe could not be carried out under the IPC as it is not applicable to J&K.
Geelani’s flight from Srinagar was delayed by 90 minutes because of poor weather in Kashmir.
This spurred rumour about Geelani’s death. Sometime later, the cellular telephone services were also disrupted causing panic.
