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

The Home Minister, in an hour long meeting, apprised Modi about the ground situation of the state 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,” Singh said in a tweet after the meeting at the Prime Minster’s residence.

While the Prime Minister returned to the capital last night after his visit to Vietnam and China, the Home Minister too had come back from Jammu and Kashmir last evening.

Sources said the members of the all-party delegation are likely to meet here tomorrow to discuss their findings during their visit and chalk out future plans for Jammu and Kashmir.

Meanwhile, Rajnath discussed Kashmir crisis with BJP president Amit Shah, after which it emerged that some “announcement” will be made tomorrow after an all-party meeting here.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Minister of State for PMO Jitendra Singh and BJP general secretary Ram Madhav were also present in the hour-long meeting which also deliberated on the issues to be discussed at the meeting tomorrow of the members of the delegation which visited Srinagar and Jammu on September 4 and 5.

“After the all-party delegation’s visit, we met today and discussed future course of action in Jammu and Kashmir. Government will make announcement after tomorrow’s meeting,” Madhav told reporters after the meeting at the Home Minister’s residence.

Asked whether the central government was planning some tough action against the Kashmiri separatists, Madhav said “all proposals will be put before all party delegation for discussions tomorrow”.
