Srinagar: The deputy chief minister and senior leader of Peoples Democratic Party, Peoples Democratic Party, Muzaffar Hussain Baig, on Monday welcome the statement by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman, Asif Ali Zardari, which said the relations between India and Pakistan should not be held hostage to the Kashmir issue and the two countries “can wait” so that future generations resolve the dispute in a mature manner in an atmosphere of “trust.” The local news agency, KNS, said Baig emphasized on the need of opening up the road links between India and Pakistan. “This will allow thousands of tourists from South Asia to visit Kashmir,” Baig told a huge gathering of people at Delina in north Kashmir’s Varmul district. He said the political instability in Pakistan was one of the biggest hurdles in the resolution of Kashmir dispute. “Had there been stability in Pakistan, Kashmir issue would have been resolved by now,” he said. Baig reacted to the recent statement by Farooq Abdullah that Mufti Muhammad Sayeed was responsible for destruction in Kashmir. “It was NC that destroyed Kashmir and forced Muhammad Yousuf Shah and other youth to pick up the gun,” he said. The deputy CM said the “single party system” is no longer viable. “The days of family rule are gone,” he said, adding that the Congress high command had been in favour of coalition between PDP and Congress. He praised the work done during the coalition rule with regard to the development in Jammu and Kashmir.The deputy chief minister and senior leader of Peoples Democratic Party, Muzaffar Hussain Baig, on Monday welcome the statement by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman, Asif Ali Zardari, which said the relations between India and Pakistan should not be held hostage to the Kashmir issue and the two countries “can wait” so that future generations resolve the dispute in a mature manner in an atmosphere of “trust.” The local news agency, KNS, said Baig emphasized on the need of opening up the road links between India and Pakistan. “This will allow thousands of tourists from South Asia to visit Kashmir,” Baig told a huge gathering of people at Delina in north Kashmir’s Varmul district.
