SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti is likely to meet Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in Delhi today to discuss the situation in Kashmir.
Mehbooba left for Delhi this afternoon 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 said.
Reacting to the development, opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said Mehbooba has finally given up the “business as usual act”.
“So @MehboobaMufti has finally given up on her ‘business as usual’ act and rushed to Delhi instead.
“The amazing thing is that it’s taken 31 days and more than 50 deaths to finally ‘disturb’ the Chief Minister,” Omar wrote on twitter.
As many as 55 persons including two police personnel have been killed and several thousand others injured in the violent protests since July 9.
