Srinagar: Home Minister of India Rajnath Singh arrived in Srinagar on Tuesday to review the overall security situation in Jammu and Kashmir, specifically in the Valley and along the India-Pakistan border, an official said.
“Heading to Srinagar on a day-long visit to Jammu and Kashmir. Shall review the security situation and important initiatives taken in the state,” the Minister tweeted before leaving the national capital.
Besides chairing a high-level security review meeting, the Minister would also be interacting with some political delegations.
He would meet Governor Satya Pal Malik at the Raj Bhawan along with senior officials from civil administration, police and security forces and assess the prevailing situation in the state.
This is Rajnath Singh’s first visit to the Kashmir Valley after governor’s rule was imposed here in June and comes on the heels of the urban local body election results on October 20.
