Hurriyat undecided on round table conference
Onkar Singh in New Delhi | May 16, 2006 19:57 IST
Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, chairman of the All Party Hurriyat Conference, has denied that Hurriyat would take part in the round table conference in Srinagar on May 25. A national daily had carried the report on Tuesday morning that Hurriyat would participate in the deliberations.
"I categorically deny the news report," Mirwaiz told rediff.com on phone from Srinagar.
"In fact we were shocked to read the news report ourselves. The All Party Hurriyat Conference would meet on May 22 to take a decision on whether or not to participate," he said.
"Please ask Mirwaiz sahib," he said.
