Talk to mainstream politicians instead of inviting diplomats to Kashmir: Soz

Srinagar, Feb 17: Taking a dig at Government of India for inviting foreign diplomats every year to Kashmir, senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Saifuddin Soz today said that government is ‘wasting’ tax payers money. He termed the visit of foreign diplomats a ‘futile’ exercise.

Soz told news agency that instead of wasting money on these diplomats, Government of India should start a dialogue with mainstream politicians. “If you reservations in talking to Hurriyat leaders, but at least talk to mainstream leaders who are available. What government will get by inviting these diplomats? They will enjoy the scenic beauty of Kashmir and will get back to their countries without any outcome,” he said.

Soz said that there are chances that behind this government exercise, any diplomat will understand the ground reality and utter truth.

“If they will meet me, I will shed light on everything. People are angry and want restoration of special status of Jammu and Kashmir,” Soz said adding that in days to come, Government of India will learn a lesson.

Soz said that Government of India should take mainstream politicians on board without wasting any time.
