Tuesday said the “PDP is not peoples’ representative but cashed the anti- BJP sentiment to cash votes during polls in Kashmir valley.” Geelani, who met Basit at 2 PM, discussed various issues pertaining to the present political situation in Jammu and Kashmir. He hailed Pakistan for continuing its support to the ‘resistance’ movement in Kashmir.  Sources told local news agency that Geelani, in the meeting, told Basit that as the euphoria is being created by the media over the representative character of the new government in JK, it in reality is a hoax and that the polls were held ‘under the barrel of gun with no democratic principles.’ The senior separatist took a further jibe against the PDP, saying that it made people to vote while trying to in-cash the anti- BJP sentiment in Valley.Over holding of dialogue with New Delhi, Geelani stated that the government of India must accept Kashmir as a dispute and people of the region as a party to it.On unity among the pro-freedom camp, the senior separatist leader said, “On principle we are not against the unity but unity of those parties only would be possible whose stand would be complete freedom and not any out of box solution.” We too want unity but it should not be the unity of heads but the unity of principles. Our alliance will be only possible with those pro- freedom parties who would accept nothing less than freedom as a solution to the Kashmir dispute,” Geelani, according to Akbar, told Pak envoy. Basit told Geelani that during his proposed meet with the Government of India, Pakistan would intimate it that the resolution of Kashmir must be the core agenda between the talks.
