An all-party delegation led by Home Minister Rajnath Singh will visit Jammu and Kashmir on 4 September.

The delegation is expected to meet a cross-section of people, individuals and organisations in its efforts to bring peace in Kashmir Valley which has been witnessing unrest after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.

On 28 August, the Home Minister had a hour-long meeting with BJP President Amit Shah, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and MoS for PMO Jitendra Singh and discussed with them the modalities of the all-party delegation. Sources said the meeting discussed the possible individuals and groups with whom the delegation may interact during its tour of the troubled state.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke about the Kashmir unrest in his 'Mann Ki Baat' programme. "'Ekta' (unity) and 'Mamata' (affection) was the crux of all interactions I had recently on Kashmir situation," he said.
