The all-party meeting concerning the turmoil in Kashmir has come to a conclusion. Sitaram Yechuri, senior CPI(M) leader on Friday, repeated his statement from Rajya Sabha and said that a system of trust must be built between the Kashmiris and the government. Attending the All-party meeting in New Delhi, Yechuri stressed that the AFSPA needed to be withdrawn from all civilian areas in the region. He added that talks need to happen between all stakeholders as it has in the past. The Home Ministry has promised to take all suggestions on board,he added. Earlier today, the Kashmir resolution was adopted by the government and an all-party meeting was called for. The members of Parliament expressed serious concern over the prolonged curfew, violence and loss of lives in the state. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was also present during the meeting.

Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar, earlier this week taunted the BJP-led central government about turning a blind eye on Kashmir. He said that Kashmir is part of India and India has to find a solution for the region. Blaming Pakistan will not help anybody, he added.Criticising the lack of communication between the government, he said that government doesn’t talk to Kashmiris, doesn’t talk to Pakistan; who will they talk to? ‘Gaurakshaks’, he had taunted.

Earlier, Rajya Sabha had unanimously passed the resolution on Kashmir, expressing sympathies over deaths in the valley. Home Minister Rajnath Singh during his Rajya Sabha debate had said that the no power can take the state of Jammu & Kashmir.
