Soz grieved over Vajpayee’s demise

Says he put serious efforts to resolve Kashmir issue


Srinagar, Aug 16 (KNS): Former union minister and senior congress leader, Prof Saif-ud-din on Thursday expressed grief over the demise of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
He in a statement issued here said that “I feel sad on the demise of Vajpayee even my assessment is that many Kashmiris will be feeling sad over his demise as the deceased had put serious efforts to resolve the Kashmir issue.”
“When Vajpayee talked about Kashmiriyat, Insaniyat and resolution of Kashmir issue, he was serious about that and took various steps in this regard but the difficulties were in his party. I believe that Vajpayee had realised that Pakistan is our neighbour and we can’t live like enemies,” he added.
He also prayed for the eternal peace to the departed soul and also for the courage to the bereaved family. (KNS)
