Srinagar June 23 (KINS): As Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to chair All Party Meeting on June 24, National Conference Wednesday said that “dialogue and inclusiveness” were vital essence of the democracy.
Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s June 24 meeting with the mainstream political parties of Jammu and Kashmir, senior National Conference leader Davendra Singh Rana along with a group of leaders from Jammu Wednesday held a meeting with party’s senior leaders including Dr Farooq Abdullah at the later’s residence in Srinagar.
Rana said they are for singular J&K and stand for unity of J&K and equitable justice to all regions.   
“Dialogue and inclusiveness are vital essence of democracy. Any dialogue that can take us out of this morass and any dialogue which will lead to the welfare of the state of J&K and it’s people we are all for it,” Rana said, as per news agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS).
“The entire team of Jammu which was along with me have reposed faith in Dr Farooq Abdullah because he is not only President of NC but also tallest leader of J&K. He has assured us that he will represent us and people of J&K with his wisdom and he alone can take dialogue forward for welfare of J&K. The pluralistic Jammu has its own aspirations and desires,” he added. 
At least 14 leaders of Jammu and Kashmir have been invited for All Party Meeting. The all-party meet will be the first political engagement since the abrogation of Article 370 in 2019 when the Centre had revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and the state was bifurcated into two union territories.
As per sources, key issues like delimitation and assembly elections are likely to be discussed that may pave way for the political processes in Jammu and Kashmir.
The speculations are also rife about statehood being discussed on the table. Union Home Minister Amit Shah had said in February this year that statehood will be restored to J-K at an appropriate time.
A senior National Conference leader who wished not to be named said the PAGD has decided to seek restoration of Article 370, statehood to Jammu and Kashmir, releasing of political leaders including the separatists and talks with Pakistan to end bloodshed here. “The Centre has already started backdoor talks with leaders of several parties,” the leader said.
