According to officials, two days after his appointment, Centre’s interlocutor on Jammu and Kashmir Dineshwar Sharma on Thursday met Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

The meeting took place at Kashmir House on Prithviraj Road.

The Centre had recently notified the appointment of Dineshwar Sharma as its interlocutors for Jammu and Kashmir.

However, Union Minister Jitendra Singh asserted on Thursday itself that Dineshwar Sharma was not just an “interlocutor” but a “special representative” to carry out sustained dialogue in the Valley.

Singh said that the the situation in Kashmir had witnessed tremendous change and the appointment of Sharma did not mean an end of security operations.

Some people say that we have made a U-turn by initiating a dialogue (in Jammu and Kashmir with the appointment of Sharma). He is not an interlocutor, his appointment is to carry forward the process set into motion by (Union Home Minister) Rajnath Singh so that nobody can say tomorrow that a dialogue is not happening. Whoever wants to put forth his point can meet him.

Singh also said the dialogue process was already in progress in the Valley as the home minister had met hundreds of delegations during his multiple visits to the state.
