Hope Centre admits that muscular approach in J&K failed: Chidambaram

Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram today said he hoped the central government, by announcing a peace initiative in Jammu and Kashmir, was finally admitting that its 'muscular approach' to the Valley's problems had failed.

'With appointment of interlocutor, I hope government has finally admitted 'muscular approach' has failed in J&K,' Chidambaram tweeted after Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said a sustained dialogue would be initiated by the government for a solution to the Kashmir issue.

Chidambaram, who as home minister in the United Progressive Alliance government had formed a three-member committee of interlocutors for a dialogue on Kashmir, said the movement from 'No talks' to 'Talks with all stakeholders' was a major victory for those who had argued for a political solution in Jammu and Kashmir.  -- PTI
