Rajnath to visit J&K tomorrow

NEW DELHI, Oct 21:
Home Minister Rajnath Singh will visit Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday during which he will review the security situation in the state and interact with political leaders, officials said.
During the day-long visit, Singh will attend a high-level meeting with Governor Satya Pal Mailk and top civil, police and security forces officials and assess the prevailing situation.
The Home Minister will review the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir, particularly in the Valley and along the border with Pakistan, during his visit on October 23, a Home Ministry official said today.
The visit of the Home Minister to Jammu and Kashmir comes following the Urban Local Body and the Panchayat elections, which were boycotted by the two major political parties — the National Conference and the People’s Democratic Party.
The Pakistan-based terror groups had also threatened to disrupt the poll process.
The Home Minister is expected to meet leaders of political parties in Jammu and Kashmir during his visit, the official said. (PTI)
