SRINAGAR: kashmiri leadership has rejected the offer made by Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh to hold talks , describing it as farce.

Hours after Union Home Minister rajnath singh tweeted that all those who believe in Kashmiriyat, Insaniyat and Jamhooriyat are welcome for a dialogue with him during his two-day visit to Kashmir, the Hurriyat Conference responded by calling his appeal a farce.

After landing in Srinagar, the Home Minister rajnath singh tweeted, "I will be staying at the Nehru Guest House. Those who believe in Kashmiriyat, Insaniyat and Jamhooriyat are welcome."

Moderate separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was the first to reject the appeal though directed to all.

"Farce of Dialogue amidst BSF's takeover of schools & colleges, rattled by Resolve of people, only answer Govt has is more & more militarization," Mirwaiz tweeted.

Later in the evening, hardline separatist leader, Syed Ali Geelani, rejected talks saying it was a waste of time.

"We don't accept Indian constitution at all, so talks within its framework are out of question. Till India accepts Kashmir as a disputed territory and start demilitarization, our struggle will continue come what may," Geelani said.

Mirwaiz also raised the issue of the killing of a teenager by security forces in south Kashmir's Pulwama district.
