Delegation of all political parties to visit J&K
The all-party meeting on Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday failed to arrive at a consensus on partial withdrawal or dilution or revocation of the contentious Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA).
However, it decided to send a delegation of political parties to the State to meet all sections of the people and assess the ground situation. The meeting, convened by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, agreed that the delegation should meet all sections of the people and gather all shades of opinion. The visit will be facilitated by the Home Ministry and the Jammu and Kashmir government.
