    New Delhi, Aug. 10: In a bid to apply the healing touch to the state’s festering wounds, the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, on Tuesday urged the people of Jammu and Kashmir to “give peace a chance”. He also reached out to the state’s youth, caught in a vortex of violence for long, to “make a new beginning” along with the assurance that the government would respond in equal measure.

    [The Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, said the Centre was willing to consider autonomy for the state within the ambit of the Constitution, PTI reported on Tuesday night]. Dr Singh told a nearly four-hour meeting with representatives of various political parties from the state here that if there was a consensus between them on autonomy, the Centre would consider it within the ambit of the Constitution.

    “We are all servants of the Constitution. There are many shades of opinion in various parts of Jammu and Kashmir. I and my senior ministers present here shows our seriousness in addressing the issues,” he said.

    Earlier, in opening remarks delivered in chaste Urdu, the PM said.

    “I appeal to the youth to go back to their schools and colleges and allow classes to resume. I ask their parents: What future is there for Kashmir if your children are not educated,” the Prime Minister said, adding, “I assure the youth of Jammu and Kashmir that their genuine empowerment will be accorded the highest priority in Jammu and Kashmir policy.”

    The PDP did not participate in the meeting.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
