The Union Home Minister made these remarks in an interactive session with a television channel today.

In a statement, the Chief Minister described it as a welcome step to initiate dialogue and reconciliation in the State. She said that given the positive outcome from the ground on the Ramadhan ceasefire in the State, the peace constituency in the country and the State should feel encouraged to start the much needed process of peaceful engagement with all stakeholders in the State.

The Chief Minister hoped that parties and groups like Hurriyat Conference will seize the opportunity and show their responsibility towards the people of the State by displaying the much needed maturity so that the opportunity is not wasted. She said a peaceful engagement among all the stakeholders in the State is urgently needed to get Jammu & Kashmir out of the unending cycle of violence and provide its people, a secure, prosperous and peaceful future.

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
