India not doing enough for peace: Mirwaiz

Accusing the Indian government of 'not doing enough' to push the peace process in Jammu and Kashmir, Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has said he would like to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to apprise him of his discussions with the Pakistani leaders.

The Mirwaiz, who is heading a three-member All Party Hurriyat Conference delegation to Pakistan, also believes that parties in Jammu and Kashmir were focused more on power politics rather than being serious about finding a solution to the Kashmir problem.

"I have my doubts about their sincerity. We have taken some initiative here, let us see how it goes," said Mirwaiz, who has been holding talks with leaders in Pakistan as also from the part of Kashmir under its occupation.

The Mirwaiz, who has called a meeting of political parties of POK on January 26, said on his return to India he would like to meet Dr Singh to apprise him of the discussions he had in Pakistan.

"But I would say that Delhi would have to do a lot of things on the ground. I do not think that Delhi is doing enough to push the peace process as is being done by Pakistan," the Hurriyat leader told PTI.

He said the time has come for all those Kashmiris, who believe that they have a role to bring peace in the state, to come together and address concerns of the people - "It should not be seen as a game of political one-upmanship."
