A delegation of opposition lawmakers from Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday met Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi here and discussed ways and means to contain the prevailing unrest in the Kashmir Valley.

The delegation was led by former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.

Speaking to media after meeting Rahul Gandhi, one of the members of the delegation said the Kashmir problem needs attention of the whole nation.

"The situation is of serious nature, the whole country should look at Jammu and Kashmir," he said, adding that lawmakers of national opposition parties should unite to find a solution to the prevailing unrest.

The delegation met President Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday. It told the President that Kashmir is faced with a political problem that cannot be handled administratively.
