"These ministers, including Haseeb Drabu, are well read and know what they are talking about", Sagar said.

"The PDP is committed to push its agenda for peaceful and dignified resolution of the Kashmir problem which alone will lessen the tension in the region and release huge financial resources of the two countries for development of their economies", he said.
