New Delhi: As part of Centre’s efforts to reach out to Jammu and Kashmir, Home Minister Rajnath Singh will visit Leh and Kargil early next month and interact with a cross section of people there.
Singh will visit Leh and Kargil on October 3 and 4 and interact with representatives of political parties, social organisations and individuals to seek their views on the present unrest in the Kashmir Valley, official sources said.
The Home Minister has already visited Srinagar twice–the first time with officials and later along with an all-party delegation–since the turmoil in Kashmir Valley erupted following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani on July 8.
Singh had visited Jammu while leading the all-party delegation.
Since the Ladakh region was left out of those trips, the Home Minister will undertake this separate visit for Leh and Kargil to meet locals there, the sources said.
