Mehbooba Mufti to meet Rajnath Singh

thestatesman.com/Agencies |

In the wake of the ongoing crisis in Kashmir Valley, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti is likely to meet Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in Delhi on Monday, media reports said. 

Mufti left and is likely to meet Singh to discuss the unrest in Kashmir in the wake of killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces last month, PDP sources told PTI.

"So @MehboobaMufti has finally given up on her ‘business as usual’ act and rushed to Delhi instead," former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah tweeted, taking a dig at Mufti. 

"The amazing thing is that it’s taken 31 days and more than 50 deaths to finally ‘disturb’ the chief minister," Omar added.

In the Rajya Sabha, Opposition members cornered the Union government and urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to break his silence on the Kashmir issue. 

Meanwhile, curfew and restrictions continue to paralyse life across the Valley for the 31st consecutive day while a total of 55 people have died and over 3,000 others injured in the unrest that started on July 9, a day after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was killed.
