Governor Satya Pal Malik says Hurriyat ready for talks, calls it ‘encouraging sign’

Governor Satya Pal Malik on Saturday said that Hurriyat is “ready for talks with the government.”

He said that earlier Hurriyat leaders were shutting doors for the government on talks.

“It is the same Hurriyat that once were shutting their doors to government and now are ready for talks,” Malik said while addressing a gathering at SKICC.

The Governor hailed the recent statement of Hurriyat (M) Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in which he expressed concern over drug abuse in Kahsmir.
