He on Thursday insisted that “gun” was not an option to solve the Kashmir conflict and, thereby, all “concerned parties” including Pakistan should have a dialogue to solve the problem and establish peace in the Valley.
The DGP was asked about the suggestions he has on resolving the Kashmir conflict while replying to live questions from Twitter users on the official Jammu and Kashmir Police Twitter handle. “I wish the Kashmir problem was so simple that I could answer in one reply.
So many brains have been working for decades to find a solution. It is not so simplistic a problem. I personally feel gun is not the solution, every party concerned, including even our neighbour, should sit together and talk it out. Violence is not the solution,” Vaid said.
Earlier, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had also requested Prime Minister Modi to initiate a dialogue process with the neighbouring country.
“Reconciliation is the mantra which we need to follow and therefore, I request Modi ji to engage with Pakistan,”Mehbooba had said while speaking at a function organised by a group of Kashmiri Pandits owing allegiance to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in New Delhi.
She also insisted that war was never an option.
