Differences cropped up on Sunday in the all-party delegation that visited Jammu and Kashmir with National Conference disapproving the nationwide agitation called by the Bharatiya Janata Party on the Amarnath issue, and the saffron party blaming the government for delay in holding the talks.
After a two-day visit to the strife-torn state, the delegation led by Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil returned to New Delhi on Sunday evening.
Patil, however, exuded confidence that solution would be found out after considering all the suggestions made at the meeting over the past two days.
To a question, the Home minister said he would brief Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, at whose initiative the delegation visited the state, on the outcome of the talks.
At the hurriedly convened press conference at the Delhi airport, National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah said in presence of other leaders that BJP's plan to hold the nationwide agitation might escalate the trouble.
"The agitation can add fuel to fire. I appeal to the BJP to stop its agaitational programme," Abdullah said.
Jaitley, on his part, had earlier said that talks would have been held long before. He felt that if exercise of having talks continued, then a solution to the row would be found.
In his opening remarks, the Home minister said: "The situation was improving and blockades have been removed. The road from Valley to Jammu and to Punjab has been cleared."
He promised compensation to the victims of the ongoing agitation.
