After Kashmir Inc, KVFG, CSFK to boycott meeting with APD

‘Without meeting separatists, it will be a futile exercise’

Srinagar: A day after the trade bodies of Kashmir have already decided to boycott meeting with All Party Delegation, the Civil Society Forum of Kashmir (CSFK) and Kashmir Valley Fruit Growers Cum Dealers Association (KVFG) on Saturday said that they will also boycott meeting with APD.

In a statement issued to KNS, Civil Society Forum of Kashmir (CSFK), stated that the member of Civil Society have unanimously decided not to meet with the delegation scheduled to visit Valley on tomorrow.

The forum suggested that Government of India (GOI) should meet and hold dialogue with the real stakeholders of Kashmir.

Similarly, Kashmir Valley Fruit Growers Association (KVFG) as per the statement issued to KNS, has decided not to meet APD on September 4 and said that it would have been better if the delegation will hold talks with pro-freedom leaders to resolve the Kashmir issue once for all.

The association said that without meeting the separatists the visit and dialogue will be a futile exercise.

Pertinently, Kashmir Inc on Friday said that they unanimously resolved not to meet the All Party Delegation scheduled to visit the Kashmir valley tomorrow.

They had said that APD has visited the Valley several times in past and have not yielded any result.

The Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Kashmir Economic Alliance, Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation and the Federation Chamber of Industries Kashmir in an emergency meeting have decided not to meet the visiting delegation and termed it as “foolish exercise aimed at photo session, which will only end up adding salts to the wounds of Kashmir’s worst-ever humanitarian crises.” (KNS)
