Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Wednesday said MPs who want an all-party delegation to visit the Valley, should have ensured implementation of the recommendations of an earlier such deputation.
“I wish MPs pushing for another All Party Delegation had been this keen about pushing the implementation of the earlier one’s recommendations,” Omar wrote on Twitter.
The NC leader said the MPs should have at least ensured tabling, in Parliament, the report of the three interlocutors appointed by the UPA government in 2010 in the wake of similar street protests in the Valley.
At the very least they could have ensured the tabling of the report of the J&K interlocutors in Parliament, Omar said.
The report submitted to the Government by the group of interlocutors, comprising eminent journalist Dileep Padgaonkar, academician Radha Kumar and former Central Information Commissioner M M Ansari, was based on their visit to the state in 2010.
