Srinagar/New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's willingness to consider autonomy for Jammu and Kashmir evoked mixed reaction from political parties today with ruling National Conference and CPI (M) welcoming the initiative but separatists saying it will not solve the crisis.

A day after Singh told an all-party meeting that the Centre was willing to consider autonomy within the ambit of the Constitution, National Conference President and Union Minister Farooq Abdullah said, "We welcome the Prime Minister's initiative on autonomy within the Constitution and I am hopeful that this will bring some peace to the valley."

As a step forward in this direction, the senior Abdullah said his party "will begin dialogue with other political parties in the state and work out to bring a consensus on this issue."

The state Pradesh Congress Chief Saif-ud-din Soz did not directly comment on autonomy but said the Prime Minister's comments on the situation in the state will definitely produce a much-required "healing touch" in the state.

 

He said the Prime Minister was very positive in the meeting and his expression of concern for the people of Jammu and Kashmir shows his compassion.

 

"His speech will definitely produce a much-required healing touch for the people of the Valley", he added.

 

Asked about his views on autonomy, he said, "You see I am an ardent believer of dialogue between people of Jammu and Kashmir and the Union Government. I am sure it will yield a resolution to the political problem."
