Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday and is most likely to have a discussion on the current state of unrest in Kashmir. She is slated to meet the Prime Minister at his 7 RCR official residence at around 10:30 a.m.

This will be the first meeting between the two after unrest broke out in the valley in July following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani.

The meeting comes days after Home Minister Rajnath Singh visited the state to assess the situation on ground. Singh held meetings with representative of civil society, political parties, Pahari community leaders and several individuals to find a solution to the current crisis. He also met Mehbooba Mufti, Governor N N Vohra and state cabinet ministers.

On Thursday, Mufti had strongly defended the action of security forces and claimed that 95 per cent of the people were keen on resolving the Kashmir issue politically and through dialogue, and added that only five percent of the people were resorting to agitation.
