Srinagar, April 27: The Chief Minister of Indian administered Kashmir Omar Abdullah Friday said the shadow of gun from the region would be removed once and for all when the basic political issues of Kashmir are addressed and resolved amicably.
“In this regard we are in favour of continuous dialogue between India and Pakistan. The internal dialogue between Kashmir and Government of India (GoI) is also of significant importance,” Omar said while addressing ruling party workers at Mandi and Surankote in mountainous Poonch district.
He said the ruling party has always supported good Indo-Pak relations and political settlement of political issues in a peaceful and friendly atmosphere. “I have repeatedly stated that the economic development cannot resolve and replace the political issues. Both have their significance and need to be addressed separately and in specific spectrums”, he said assuring the people that he will continue his endeavours towards prosperity and permanent peace of Kashmir and creating a tranquil and conducive atmosphere where gun will be totally irrelevant and absurd.
He said the shadow of gun from Jammu and Kashmir would be removed totally when the basic political issues are addressed and resolved amicably.
