  Gen. Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan President:  India should immediately withdraw its forces from J&K and hold a plebiscite under United Nations supervisions to determine the status of J&K. So called elections to J&K are a sham and an eyewash to the international community.    LK Advani, Deputy Prime Minister, India:  The kind of concern being shown by the Western nations proves the importance of the polls. If the J&K polls are conducted in a free and fair manner, then there won't be any meaning left for holding of a plebiscite.
