PM Modi To Hold Meeting Of All Parties From Jammu And Kashmir Soon: Reports
Srinagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called an all-party meeting on Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday, reportedly, to discuss the restoration of statehood and other important issues concerning the union territory.
This is the PM’s first major outreach to end the political impasse over the scrapping of Article 370 in 2019.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday met National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and top security and intelligence officers.
The centre is also expected to discuss assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir, due since 2018, when then Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti snapped ties with her coalition partner BJP.
The latest development comes months after India and Pakistan announced a ceasefire along the Line of Control, the first major peace initiative since 2019.
