Centre trying to buy time on Kashmir issue: Shabir

Democratic Freedom Party president Shabir Ahmad Shah on Wednesday accused the Centre of organising conferences and setting up bodies to probe human rights violations to buy time on the Kashmir issue and to "hoodwink" the world community.
"India is working on a well-planned programme... organising meaningless conferences, setting up so-called commissions to investigate human rights violations by the Army and other forces and announcing namesake confidence building measures to lessen the pressure of the international community to resolve kashmir," Shah said in a statement.
He claimed such moves were meant to delay the resolution of the Kashmir issue.
"Had New Delhi been serious and sincere about resolving the Kashmir problem, it should have used the roundtable conference convened by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh here last month and announced some solid measures," Shah said adding such a thing did not happen.
