Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha Wants A Political Dialogue In Kashmir; Kashmiri’s Think Men Like Subramanyam Will Be A Stumbling Block: Soz

Srinagar, Aug 10 (KNS): Senior Congress leader and former union minister Prof. Saifuddin Soz on Monday said that he has wrote a letter to lieutenant Governor UT jammu and Kashmir.

According to statement issued to KNS Soz said “In a letter to Lt. Governor, Manoj Sinha today, Prof. Soz asserted that if he (Lt. Governor Sinha) wants a political Dialogue in Kashmir, then Kashmiris think that people like Chief Secretary, Mr. Subramanyam could be a ‘Stumbling Block’!

Soz explained to Lt. Governor that his (Lt. Governor Sinha’s) intention of opening a dialogue with Kashmiri Mainstream Leadership would be a non-starter if men like Subramanyam were at the helm as advisors.This is what general run of Kashmiris perceive the process of dialogue to be.

Soz suggested to the Lt. Governor to be clear in his mind on the dialogue process as unless Sinha was free to handle discussion and dialogue with the Mainstream leadership, there was no fun to initiate such a dialogue!

Soz explained further that the people of Kashmir think that Lt. Governor cannot achieve his purpose of a dialogue with bureauractic fetters around him!

Soz imagined further that Lt. Governor Sinha has to be clear in his mind on even the psychological element in Kashmir politics before initiating a meaningful dialogue process.

Soz however, felt convinced that since Manoj Sinha is a politician of a standing, it is possible for him to initiate the dialogue process in Kashmir.” (KNS)
