What The All-Party Delegation To Kashmir Hopes To Achieve?

Home Minister Rajnath Singh will lead an all-party delegation to violence-hit Jammu and Kashmir on September 4 as the Central government is trying to bring peace in the Valley. Last week, Rajnath visited Srinagar and held talks with many leaders from various political parties and civil society members.

The central delegation will meet a cross section of people in the Valley which has seen widespread violence since the killing of militant Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8. Curfew was lifted after 51 days in the Valley. “Except for Pulwama town and two police station areas of Nowhatta and MR Gunj in Srinagar, there would be no curfew anywhere in the Valley,” a senior police official said.
The relaxation in curfew came after 51 days since the ongoing unrest that began on July 9. At least 71 people including 68 civilians and three policemen have been killed and over 11,000 injured in the unrest that started in Jammu and Kashmir on July 9 Wani’s killing by security forces.

    The success of the All Party delegations lies on involving them with the decision making process so that all the parties(stake holders) can take credit and if this is not followed the Opposition parties will play politics over the issue and none can bring the desired result from the Region. We need to approach the issue with Out of Box thinking and the person must be able to lead from the front and the quest ion is WHO who WILL ???

      The Kashmiris must realise that peace is paramount with dignity of all life and that the ravaged land has a right to rejuvenation so all life can begin to prosper now. The contrast is of course the genocidal annexation of Tibet by the partner and mentor of stan- Red China.
