Rejecting Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad's idea of convening an all-party meet to discuss the diversion of forest land to the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board, PDP demanded the immediate cancellation of the order.

"It is too late for any such consultation now and if at all the consultation was needed at political level, it should have been done before the issuance of the order," Peoples Democratic Party patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed told reporters at the sideline of a function at Raj Bhavan in Srinagar this evening.

Responding to the public sentiment, the government must cancel the order immediately. The views and sentiments of the people on the issue have to be respected and responded to, he said, adding the diversion of land to SASB was only an administrative order that can be nullified by another such order.
