If elected to power, NC will establish commission to probe killings in J&K: Farooq

SRINAGAR: National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah on Saturday said if his party is elected to power with a majority in the upcoming assembly elections, it would establish a truth and reconciliation commission to probe killings in Jammu and Kashmir.

He also asserted that Kashmir is fundamentally a political problem and only reconciliation and dialogue within the State as well as with Pakistan can afford a way forward.

Farooq Abdullah, a member of Parliament from Srinagar Lok Sabha constituency, was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a party function in Anantnag district of south Kashmir. (AGENCIES)
