Rajnath briefs Modi on Kashmir situation

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the situation in Kashmir after returning from a two-day visit to the State.

The Minister, in an hour-long meeting, apprised Mr. Modi of the ground situation that was assessed by the all-party delegation, which visited Srinagar and Jammu on September 4 and 5.

“Briefed the Prime Minister on all-party delegation’s visit to J&K and also apprised him of the situation in the State,” Mr. Singh said in a tweet after the meeting at the Prime Minster’s residence.

While the Prime Minister returned to the capital on Monday night after a visit to Vietnam and China, the Home Minister too came back from Jammu and Kashmir on Monday evening.

Sources said the members of the all-party delegation are likely to meet in New Delhi on Wednesday to discuss their findings and chalk out future plans for the State.

The delegation concluded its visit on Monday with no breakthrough.

Unhappy at the stubborn refusal of Hurriyat leaders to meet some MPs who had literally knocked at their doors in Srinagar, the Home Minister had said that their conduct was against “democracy, humanity or even ‘Kashmiriyat’ (Kashmiri ethos).”
