The report of the Centre’s interlocutors on Kashmir would be made public after Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) considers it, Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram said on Tuesday.
“Interlocutors’ report, As I said in Delhi, will be made public after the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) has considered the matter”, Mr. Chidambaram told reporters here and refused to take further questions on the issue.
Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has pitched for making the report public, holding debate on it and thereafter implementing the recommendations.
The three interlocutors on Jammu and Kashmir, noted journalist Dilip Padgaonkar, former Information Commissioner M.M. Ansari and noted academician Radha Kumar, had submitted their report to Mr. Chidambaram in New Delhi on October 12, 2011, laying down a roadmap for the government to address all issues pertaining to the state.
‘Amendments to AFSPA pending’
“Ministry of Home Affairs has proposed three amendments in AFSPA. They are under consideration of CCS,” he further said. However, he did not elaborate on the nature of the amendments that have been proposed.
Mr. Chidambaram was on a day-long visit to Jammu and Kashmir to review the security situation in the State.
