Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh chaired a high-level review meeting in Srinagar on Thursday, a day after he met Jammu and Kashmir Governor NN Vohra during his two-day visit. Singh, along with National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, had chaired review meetings at the Raj Bhavan and Hari Niwas on Wednesday, Greater Kashmir reported.
The home minister’s visit to the Amarnath caves on Thursday was cancelled because of poor weather, IANS reported. He will return to New Delhi later in the day.
Singh and Doval are in the state to review the ongoing Amarnath pilgrimage and to seek fresh feedback on the challenge of militancy in the Valley, according to Greater Kashmir. Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba is accompanying them.
On Wednesday, Singh discussed with Vohra various developmental projects, the security situation and the positive engagement of youth in Jammu and Kashmir, a spokesperson for the governor’s office told Greater Kashmir. This is the home minister’s first visit to the state after Governor’s Rule was imposed on June 20.
