The discussion revolved around a broad set of issues - sense of alienation, autonomy and democratic deficit, developmental stagnation, cross-border influences, stone pelting and radicalisation, and the China-Pakistan nexus in the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK). Perceived acts of commission and commission by New Delhi were also narrated. Mr K M Singh and Mr P C Haldar were among key discussants.
