Sinha-led team back in Kashmir for ‘peace and dialogue’

Srinagar: The Concerned Citizens Group led by former BJP minister Yashwant Sinha is back on a on two-day visit to the Kashmir valley which will begin tomorrow with an aim for “dialogue and peace” in the state.

Talking to news agency KNS, Sinha said that the team comprising of Kapil Kak, AVM (R), Bharat Bhushan, Editor Catch News and Sushobha Barve, head of Centre for Dialogue and Reconciliation will start the visit on Wednesday.

“We have arrived here again to continue our efforts for peace and dialogue. We will meet a lot of people in two days. The meeting will take place on 17 and 18 August,” Sinha told KNS, without revealing whom they are meeting.

Earlier, the Group had met Hurriyat leaders and mainstream political parties and civil society in the valley when they had first arrived in October last year amid the 2016 Uprising.

The Group had last year visited the valley amid the fourth-month long uprising and civilian killings to assess the situation and insist on the BJP-led government in New Delhi to hold dialogue with Hurriyat and other stakeholders in the state for political resolution of the Kashmir issue.
