Interlocutor Sharma’s second innings likely to begin later this month

Srinagar—The central government appointed in­terlocutor for J&K Dinesh­war Sharma is likely to visit J&K later this month or in the first week of next month, sources told KNS.

After submitting his report to Home Minister Rajnath Singh about his first five-day visit to J&K, Sharma is begin­ning his second visit by the end of this month or the begin­ning of December.

Talking to KNS over phone from New Delhi, Sharma said the exact date has not been fixed yet. “But yes I am visiting very soon. I will try to meet more and more people,” he said.

Asked if he would formally write to Hurriyat for the talks, he said, “Let me reach their. I will talk to everyone,” he said.

On his first visit, Sharma met around 65 delegations in­cluding political leaders, reli­gious leaders and other civil society members and different NGOs. However, the promi­nent trade and business bodies refused to meet while the Hur­riyat Conference considered key stakeholders of the Kash­mir issue also refused to hold talks with Sharma. (KNS)
