The delegation should have reached much before the Ramadan month. In between, some 100 people had already died festering further the wound and aggravating further the anger of the kashmiri people. The all pervasive sense of alienation had run full circle thereby cementing it further by the time the delegation arrived.
It certainly was a difficult task to perform especially when the delegation was having no clear cut agenda as to what they were expected to do after their arrival in Kashmir. This could be attributed to the Government stand of first restoring the normalcy in the valley before initiating the political process.
The delegation may be perceived to have achieved something by meeting separatist leaders sending a clear cut message to the people of the valley that the Parliament is sincerely anxious now to ameliorate their grudges and grievances. They were at least successful in sending the message that Governments at the centre and the state levels were ready to listen now and redress their genuine grievances.
