THE ALL Party Hurriyat Conference (U), the liberal faction led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, is likely to attend Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's second roundtable conference on Kashmir to be held in Srinagar on May 25.

Having boycotted the first roundtable conference in Delhi, the separatist combine is believed to have sent out positive signals about their participation in the meet. It would be the first time that they would be sharing a platform with the main-line political parties for the first time.

Despite a broader agreement among the Hurriyat constituents on attending the meet, the separatist leaders were learnt to be weighing the possible political fall-out of their participation in the post-conference scenario. They want that the Hurriyat remains distinctive from other political parties so that its participation in the meet does not appear to be in conflict with its separatist plank.
