Early Times Report
JAMMU, Mar 19: Suddenly there is a clamour in Kashmir Valley that the Government of India wants to talk to the separatists and a top official of the Intelligence Bureau approached Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Shah Geelani with the offer.
Soon after Geelani claimed that he got the talks offer Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh cleared the air and stated that "Jammu and Kashmir is and would continue to be an integral part of India."
Singh maintained that talks have to be held within the ambit of the constitution and no compromise would be made with the irrelevant separatists in Kashmir.
Sources told Early Times that separatists are desperate and want to somehow make their presence felt by spreading canards. "Why should an official approach Geelani for talks. Offer of the dialogue is made at political level and not at official level," they added.
A politician claimed that Geelani is looking for "ways and approach for dialogue." "It's strange that Geelani came out with a statement claiming that he rejected the talks offer made by an IB official," he said.
The politician said that even if Geelani wants to talk he would have to hold parleys with Dineshwar Sharma, Centre's representative. "For entering into a dialogue Geelani has to acknowledge that he is ready to fall in the line and he would hold talks within the ambit of the constitution. Then only talks could be held with him."
He said that GOI's policy is clear that there is no question of holding talks with anybody outside the Constitution of India. "These over pampered separatists have been shown their right place during the past few years. Now they want to break the shackles again and enjoy life and they grasping for breathing space," the politician added.
A Kashmir watcher said, "Geelani has tried his best to seek the release of his son-in-law who was arrested by the National Investigating Agency in connection with the terror funding case last year. Some leaders of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party also tried to help Geelani but couldn't succeed as GOI's policy is clear that Pakistan stooges and the people who preach sedition won't be spared."
He said, "Geelani it seems is spreading rumours about dialogue to make people believe that GoI is desperate to talk to the separatists but they are not budging from their stand."
He said, "Geelani and his so-called party stands cornered they somehow want to come out of the mess and are dropping enough hints to indicate that they are ready for talks but there are no takers."
