Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh-led all-party delegation will visit the Kasmir Valley on Saturday to discuss and find solution to the ongoing unrest. Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday invited Hurriyat leaders for talks with the all-party delegation.

A preparatory meeting of all-party delegation was held in New Delhi on Saturday. Singh said the Centre would take a final decision with regard to Kashmir unrest on the basis of feedback and suggestions given by the all party-delegation. The delegation was made aware of the prevailing situation in the state and contours of the tour during which they will hold talks with a cross-section of people.

Along with Singh, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar, Minister of State in PMO Jitendra Singh and top officials were present in the meeting. The prevailing ground situation in Jammu and Kashmir, views of different stake holders, individuals and groups were conveyed to the parliamentarians during the meeting.

During the two-day visit, the MPs will interact with Governor N.N. Vohra and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, and will also be holding meetings with representatives of all political parties and other delegations in Srinagar to bring peace in the Valley. The valley is facing unrest due to protests in the aftermath of the killing of terrorist Burhan Wani on July 8.
