Manmohan Singh-led Congress panel arrives in Srinagar

Srinagar: A Congress delegation led by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh arrived in Srinagar on Saturday for a series of meetings on the current situation in Kashmir, sources said.
The Congress’s policy-planning group on Kashmir is in the Valley for two days for talks with party leaders and workers, trade associations and civil societies.
The panel completed the first leg of its tour in Jammu, Congress sources said.
Apart from Singh, the group comprises former Union home minister P Chidambaram, Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Gulam Nabi Azad, and AICC general secretary Ambika Soni.
The team is also scheduled to meet members of other political parties, they added.
The panel was formed in April this year after the situation in the Valley worsened during the Srinagar Lok Sabha bypolls.
The panel also plans to visit Ladakh later.
