Srinagar: Calling for boycott of Centre's interlocutors on Jammu and Kashmir, hardline Hurriyat Conference Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Monday said they had been appointed as part of a 'dirty trick' to mislead US President Barack Obama. 'The real aim of (appointing) the interlocutors is to mislead the US President during his visit to India next month. Government of India wants to impress upon him that it is making a serious effort for resolution of Kashmir issue,' Geelani told reporters at his residence in Srinagar. Geelani, who was placed under house arrest immediately after his return from Delhi on Sunday, reiterated his call for boycotting the interlocutors as people have already conveyed their message about their wish for resolution of Kashmir issue under the right to self-determination.
