Home Minister Rajnath Singh chaired an all-party meeting in New Delhi Wednesday to discuss and assess the situation in Kashmir with the delegation that visited the Valley earlier this week. Several parts of the Valley have been troubled by violence, stone-pelting and frequent clashes between security forces and protesters. Close to 70 people have died in the clashes and hundreds injured.
Leaders of opposition parties, who were part of the all-party delegation that traveled to Srinagar and Jammu, are likely to press the government to come up with “concrete” proposals to reach out to the Valley.
Ahead of the all party meeting, the Home Minister met Army chief Dalbir Singh to discuss the future strategy in Kashmir.
Rajnath Singh held a crucial meeting in New Delhi Monday, which was attended by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, BJP President Amit Shah, Minister of State in PMO Jitendra Singh and Party General Secretary Ram Madhav.
