    NEW DELHI: Announcing a eight-point Kashmir formula, the Centre on Saturday said a group of interlocutors led by an eminent persons will hold "sustained dialogue" with all sections of Jammu and Kashmir and also review deployment of security forces in the Valley, especially in Srinagar.

    Unveiling a package of measures approved by the Cabinet Committee of Security(CCS) at its meeting here in a bid to deal with the civil unrest in the Kashmir Valley, home minister P Chidambaram said the state government will be advised to review the notification of areas as "Disturbed Areas". The unrest has claimed the lives of 105 persons since June 10.

    The 30-minute CCS meeting was presided by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

    Briefing reporters after the meeting, Chidambaram did not elaborate whether the review of the Disturbed Areas notification was a prelude to any phased withdrawal of the contentious Armed Forces Special Powers Act ( AFSPA) from certain areas of the Valley.
    J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah welcomed the Centre's initiative saying it is a positive development and must lead to a resolution to all political issues of Jammu and Kashmir.

    The CCS decisions were taken after it reviewed the situation in the Valley and considered the report of the recent visit of the 36-member all-party delegation to J&K submitted by Chidambaram, who had led the team.

    In a bid to reach out to the masses, the Centre also advised the J&K government to release students and youth who have been arrested or detained for stone pelting and similar violations of law during the Valley unrest, and withdraw all charges against them.

    The state government has also been advised to review cases of all Public Safety Act (PSA) detenues and withdraw detention orders in appropriate cases.

    "Government will appoint a group of interlocutors under the chairmanship of an eminent person to begin the process of sustained dialogue with political parties, groups, students, civil society," Chidambaram said.

    However, he did not say the exact composition of the group and skirted the question and said "it can be either one plus two or one plus three...we will see."

    The CCS decided to advice the state government to immediately convene a meeting of the Unified Command and review the deployment of the security forces in Kashmir valley, especially at Srinagar, with particular reference to descale bunkers and check points in the summer capital and other towns, the home minister said.

    you need to show more political wisdom. You can't approach everything with a stick---adapt and adapt.

    Nope they are not sitting in their home safely , they are abroad studying while the youth of Kashmir have no education, a good policy by the separatists to achieve their aims, illiterate masses are easier to control and manipulate you see..

    it's just a normal procedure all over india.
    i don't mind giving 1 lakh or so to each kashmiri if that can shut their mouths for ever. You may call it bribe or what ever but i want to end this 63 years old non sense.

    Normal procedure is when some natural calamity struck or some accident or something like it.It is not Normal Procedure to reward ppl indulging in wanton arson and rioting.

    BTW all the central assistance of thousands of crores annually has not shut their loud mouths, do u think this measly 5 Lakh will shut their mouth and make them patriotic Indians. ? NO

    Instead deal with these ppl as they deserve to be and give that 5 Lakh to some poor farmers who are commiting suicide or to some destitute so that they have good food.

    i wonder if there is actually any way for India to deal with this Kashmir problem. we had the opportunity in past, we didnt utilise it.
    rewarding the culprits wont solve the problem. on the contrary being too harsh wont solve the problem either.
    what could be the solution for this ..??
    sometimes i think when i see them crying for azadi, why not wipe their entire breed from the kashmir once n for all, like what they did to pandits.

    BJP flays Centre's J&K formula, calls for shutdown in Jammu

    BJP today called for a shutdown in Jammu on September 30 against steps announced by the Centre to address the crisis in the Valley, saying the "Kashmir centric" formula was aimed at appeasing separatists and saving Omar government. "It was decided to observe Jammu bandh on September 30.

    The bandh is to protest against Kashmir-centric 8-point formula formulated to save Omar government by appeasing separatists," Pradesh BJP president Shamsher Singh Manhas said after a party meeting here today.


    The slew of measures announced by the Centre have been prepared at the instance of state government to appease separatists so that Omar government continues in power, he said. Calling for dismissal of Omar government, he criticised the Centre for giving it a clean chit and considering excluding certain areas from the purview of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, saying it would not be in the interest of people nor peace.

    Claiming the support of many organisations to the bandh, he said it was also in protest against policies of the UPA and the NC-Congress government in which Jammu has been "ignored and discriminated against".

    Transport, hotel, trade and business community in Jammu also suffered a lot during the 63-day land row agitation in 2008 with many people sacrificing their lives, but there is no one to think about them, he said.

    "While families of protesters who died in Kashmir have got Rs 5 lakh as compensation, the kin of those killed in Jammu during the land row got just Rs one lakh," he said terming it as an act of gross discrimination against people of the region.
