Azad attends over Kashmir leaders meeting on citizenship for refugees

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad joined an all-party meeting of Kashmiri leaders here on saturday to discuss modalities for granting citizenship rights to the refugees who had settled in Kashmir since 1947.

Srinagar, May 13 : Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad joined an all-party meeting of Kashmiri leaders here on saturday to discuss modalities for granting citizenship rights to the refugees who had settled in Kashmir since 1947.

Saturday's meeting at the high-security Nehru Guesthouse in the Chasmashahi area of Srinagar included senior Congress leaders Mangat Ram Sharma and Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed, Mehbooba Mufti, the president of the People's Democratic Party, Abdul Rahim Rather of the National Conference, who is also the leader of the opposition in the 87-member state Assembly, Mohammad Yusuf Tarigami, general secretary of the state unit of CPI (M), professor Bhim Singh of the Panther's Party and some leaders of the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Official sources said that the informal discussions also included fresh delimitation of assembly constituencies with the intended 25 percent increase over the existing seats in the Assembly.

The PDP and the National Conference have already expressed opposition to any moves aimed at granting citizenship rights to the refugees. Jammu and Kashmir is the only state which has special permanent residents' rules under which no non-state subject can buy land.
