Several delegations, including religious and political organisations, met entre-appointed interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma on Monday in the border town of Kargil and voiced for dialogue with separatists on Kashmir issue.

Sharma -- who is a former Intelligence Bureau (IB) chief -- is on his maiden three-day visit to Ladakh region, after being appointed as an interlocutor for Kashmir on October 23, 2017 by the Centre, to initiate a meaningful dialogue process with all stakeholders.

Official sources told UNI that several delegations, including members of the Imam Khomeini Memorial Trust Kargil, Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat Kargil, Anjuman e Sahab Zaman Kargil, Anjuman e Sufia Noorbakshia Kargil, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Kargil, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Kargil, Indian National Congress (INC) Kargil and the National Conference (NC) Kargil, met Mr Sharma at the Conference Hall Baroo in Kargil.

“We have unanimously called for resolution of Kashmir issue through a purposeful dialogue process by involving all stakeholders, including the Hurriyat conference. 
'We demand integrity of the state to be maintained at all costs, grant of provincial status to Ladakh region, construction of alternate highways and motorable roads like Panikhar-Pahalgam Road, Hanu-Tiakshi Road over Chorbat La, besides opening of Kargil-Skardu and Nubra-Khapulu Roads,' the delegation members told reporters after meeting the Centre-appointed interlocutor.
