Hurriyat Conference

Hardline Hurriyat Conference leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Sunday said the amalgam is not interested in entering a "meaningless" dialogue process with the Centre.

Geelani said this reacting to Union minister Farooq Abdullah's statement on Saturday that the separatists should initiate a dialogue process on their own as the Centre would not come with a begging bowl to Hurriyat for holding talks on Kashmir issue.

"Hurriyat is not interested in a meaningless dialogue process (with the Centre)," Geelani said in a statement.

Geelani said the National Conference leader was trying to be "more loyal than the king".

"Farooq Abdullah is an employee of Government of India and it deos not behove him to speak his master's language," he added.
