New Delhi [India], Sept. 7 (ANI): After chairing an all-party meeting today on tackling the prolonged Kashmir unrest, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will meet President Pranab Mukherjee here.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. this evening.

Rajnath will also be meeting Indian Army Chief Dalbir Singh and Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi today around 10: 15 a.m. before meeting with the President.

This development comes after Rajnath briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday on the situation in Kashmir after returning from a two-day visit to the State.

"Briefed the Prime Minister on all-party delegation's visit to J&K and also apprised him of the situation in the State," Mr. Singh said in a tweet after the meeting at the Prime Minister's residence.

The delegation concluded its visit on Monday with no breakthrough as the Hurriyat leaders refused to interact with the representatives. (ANI)
