New Delhi [India], Jan. 2 (ANI): Congress leader Dr. Karan Singh on Monday said that the ruling government should be willing to talk to the Separatists as discussion is the only way forward to solve the Kashmir issue. "We should talk to the separatist, if they are ready to talk then we should also proceed," Singh told ANI here. Singh also urged that Centre must also engage in a dialogue with Pakistan as it would be beneficial for both the sides. "We need to talk to Pakistan, until there is no dialogue, there would be no solution to the Kashmir issue," he said. Earlier, Dr Sheikh Mustafa Kamaal, additional general secretary of J&K National Conference alleged that the present ruling coalition of BJP and PDP were hell bent to erode the secular fabric of the State so painstakingly built by National Conference against all odds including the well entrenched groups with communal mindset dating back to bloody and painful days of partition of the Indian Sub-Continent.
