PM Narendra Modi government at the Centre has made it clear that it will go to any extent to put an end to Kashmir unrest. But in doing so, the Centre will not bow down to the whims of Kashmiri separatists who refused to meet the All Party Delegation led by Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Since his return to the national capital on yesterday, Singh has been involved in a series of meetings to formulate a strategy to deal with the Kashmiri separatists.
Both Delhi and Srinagar are the two fronts for dealing with the crisis. While in Delhi, the Home Minister is holding the fort, in Srinagar, state CM Mehbooba Mufti is on a mission mode to expose the dubious characters of separatists leaders who continue to enjoy perks from India but often identify themselves with Pakistan.
Here are some latest developments happening in the national capital vis-a-vis Kashmir since yesterday.
