Kashmir Committee members arrive in Jammu
Jammu, July 22: A three-member Kashmir Committee, headed by Rajya Sabha member Ram Jethmalani, arrived in Jammu Friday to hold talks with various sections of people in the region to find its own solution to the Kashmir issue.
Ram Jethmalani-headed panel is non-official. Its other members are V K Grover, a former diplomat, and rights activist Madhu Kishwar.
The panel is working to find its own solution to the crisis in Jammu and Kashmir, almost in a parallel exercise to that being conducted by three government-appointed interlocutors.
According to sources close to the panel, the Kashmir Committee will meet leaders of political groups, social activists and intellectuals during their three-day stay here.
Earlier, the panel undertook two visits to the Kashmir, where the members met leaders of the separatist groups, including Hurriyat (G) chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Hurriyat (M) chief Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
