Jammu and Kashmir Panthers Party (JKNPP) on Saturday appealed to separatists to respond positively to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's invitation for talks to ensure peace in the state.
"Hurriyat leaders inside and outside the jail should not miss a historic opportunity for talks. They should respond to the invitation of the prime minister," JKNPP chief told reporters after a party meeting in Srinagar.
He said all Kashmiri leaders belonging to political and social organisations need to join the constructive dialogue to ensure return of peace and development in the state.
While returning from Yekaterinburg in Russia on June 17, the Prime Minister said he stands ready to engage in dialogue with any group, including those who are not in political mainstream, an apparent reference to Hurriyat Conference.
The party meeting also passed a resolution urging governor NN Vohra to suspend Congress-NC coalition government for its alleged failure to protect the life and property of people.
"A short spell of governor's rule is essential to bring the administration back to the rail," he said.
