Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi here today and apprised him about the situation in the Kashmir Valley which has been on the boil for the last 67 days.

The Governor flew in this morning, briefed the Prime Minister and returned to the valley in the afternoon.

There was no official word as to what transpired during the Governor’s 30-minute meeting with the Prime Minister but it is believed that he apprised him about the situation as well as steps being taken for restoring the law and order.

The meeting comes after the government had put to rest all speculation about a change at the Raj Bhavan in the state.

The Governor had yesterday summoned state Education Minister Naeem Akhtar and asked him to ensure reopening of all the educational institutions in the state.

According to the sources, the Governor conveyed his displeasure over continuous failure on part of the state education department to reopen the educational institutes.

The Governor has been expressing serious concern over the irreparable damage suffered by students at all levels, particularly school students, from the closure of the entire educational system due to the prevailing unrest in the Kashmir Valley which has been on boil since July 8 when Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani was killed.
