Jammu & Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik Saturday briefed Union Home Minister Amit Shah about the security situation in the state, which is currently under the President’s rule.
During the 15-minute meeting, the Governor apprised the home minister about the preparation for the Amarnath Yatra which starts from July 1.
The two held discussions on the law and order situation in the Kashmir Valley and the border areas besides various development issues, news agency PTI reported. “I have discussed security matters and development issues with the Home Minister,” Malik told reporters after the meeting.
Malik, however, said that the issue related to holding assembly elections in the state was not discussed as the matter was under the purview of the Election Commission of India.
The state of Jammu and Kashmir does not have an elected government and is currently ruled by Governor Satya Pal Malik under President’s rule.
