After the meeting with PM Narendra Modi got over, Omar said that there is no time for politics and blame game. He further added, ''We have not come with complaints about anybody, we are hopeful that solution that is arrived at helps all.” Omar Abdullah also said that this issue must not be politicised.

The delegation also submitted to the Prime Minister a memorandum that demanded an immediate ban on the use of pellet guns in the troubled state.

The delegation apprised the Prime Minister that the tried and tested formulations of dealing with the political issue in Kashmir administratively rather than politically has further exasperated the situation and "created an unprecedented sense of disaffection and disenchantment", especially among the youth.



The situation in the Valley, which continues to remain under curfew for last 45 days, prompted all the opposition parties in the state, cutting across party lines, to join hands and request the Centre for initiating a political dialogue with all stake holders in the state.

Besides Omar, the delegation - comprising a seven-member team of state Congress led by its PCC chief GA Mir, CPM legislator MY Tarigami, eight-member team of main opposition National Conference including its provincial chiefs Nasir Wani and Davinder Rana -- has been camping in the national capital and meeting political leaders from the government and opposition.

The meeting came a day after the delegation met Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday to discuss ways to contain the prevailing unrest in the Kashmir Valley.
