Omar Abdullah meets Interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma in Srinagar

Prominent trade and tourism associations in Kashmir have turned down invites to meet Jammu and Kashmir special representative Dineshwar Sharma, dealing a setback to the Centre's goal of reaching out to "all stakeholders". Sitting in a guesthouse and waiting for people to come and meet him won't yield results.

Commenting on his meeting with Sharma, Parra said: "This is a meaningful dialogue process because the Central government has owned and institutionalized this process".

Sharma also met CPM leader M Y Tarigami, who represents south Kashmir's Kulgam constituency in the assembly.

Talking to reporters after the meet, Abdullah said that Sharma called him and asked for suggestions on the job assigned to him.

He said the centre should gain the confidence of people and stakeholders in order to sustain the process of dialogue till every stakeholder is willingly engaged.

SRINAGAR: Opposition National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah today asserted that autonomy to both sides of the erstwhile princely state of Jammu and Kashmir was the "only solution", saying that India and Pakistan could not keep people of the region hostage to their ego.He urged both the countries to take concrete political steps for resolving the vexed Kashmir issue. "We discussed the prevailing situation in the State as also steps that can be taken to make his visits to the State more meaningful".

Terming the meeting, a private affair, Abdullah said there was no discussion on autonomy for the state.

Kristina later told the Hollywood Reporter that the producer was Kaine Harling, who she briefly dated in 2013. She goes on to say that out of the blue, Westwick suggested sexual activities to all the people present.

"[The] interlocutor was told that public perception is of disbelief and cynicism in Kashmir".

Sources said that Sharma drove to the house of Omar Abdullah and interacted with him.

Sharma met the three politicians at Tarigami's residence in Srinagar.

"The hurdles created by the statements of Center should be stopped so that he can wok freely, we hope more people will meet him next time", he added. "We firmly believe that neither coercion nor violence is the option".

On Monday, Sharma arrived in Srinagar to initiate a "sustained dialogue" with stakeholders in Jammu and Kashmir.

"He also asked how he can make his mission fruitful".
