Pak stooges caught on wrong foot!
GoI appointing interlocutor puts them in tight spot; Violence mongers go into 'silent mode'

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Oct 25: Central government appointing Dineshwar Sharma as its new pointman for Kashmir has put the separatists in tight spot. They have neither welcomed the move nor have they opposed it.
For the past 2-days the so-called joint leadership comprising Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik, has gone into "silent mode."
An analyst while talking to Early Times said, "They are not talking as their bosses sitting across the Line of Control (LoC) have not given their nod to do so."
He said, "They are not opposing the appointment of interlocutor as they don't want to annoy New Delhi. They know it very well that if they open their mouth National Investigating Agency (NIA) would further tighten its noose around them and won't give them a second chance. Geelani, Mirwaiz and Malik are in no mood to go to jail."
A politician said, "Separatists are sailing in two boats. They don't know whom to side with. After the NIA raids they had given enough hints that they are ready for talks but on the other hand their bosses sitting across the LoC want them to remain hostile and follow the agenda of violence and disruption in Kashmir."
Former Chief of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), A S Dulat gas advised separatists to not to miss the bus. "Separatists must welcome the announcement of sustained dialogue and appointment of an interlocutor on Kashmir by the central government. I welcome the announcement. Dialogue must start. Though it is delayed but it is better late than never," Dulat said.
He said that Hurriyat should participate in the dialogue process and "must welcome it". "There is no other option than talks for resolving issues. Hurriyat must talk," he said.
Duat said if separatists come forward for talks NIA raids would stop. "Once the dialogue starts, hopefully these raids will stop," he claimed.
He said that Dineshwar Sharma is a good man and he has been in Kashmir. "He understands Kashmir."
Many people believe that Government of India (GoI) is showing desperation for talks and it's not a good sign. "Separatists have become irrelevant and to insist that they should participate in the talks would make them relevant again. Talks can only be held with the elected representatives of the people. Before holding talks with them, they should be asked to prove their representative character. They should contest elections first and swear by the Indian constitution," said a critic.
He said, "Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government needs to revisit its decision to hold talks with the Pak stooges, who are waiting for a nod from other side to react to the development."
