Srinagar: The concern shown for Jammu and Kashmir at the all-party meeting in New Delhi was ‘noteworthy’ but it should be followed by confidence-building measures to set off the democratic political process, minister and senior PDP leader Naeem Akhtar stated here on Friday. He said the all-party meeting was a ‘good beginning’ which needs to be carried forward.
“The concern for Jammu and Kashmir is noteworthy but we expect a follow up in the shape of measures which build confidence among the people and set off a democratic political process,” he said.
