Srinagar: The central government’s point man on Kashmir, Dineshwar Sharma is likely to visit the state later this month, sources said.
After submitting his report to Home Minister Rajnath Singh about his first five-day visit to J&K, Sharma is beginning his second visit by the end of this month or the beginning of December.
Talking to a news gathering agency from New Delhi, Sharma said the exact date has not been fixed yet. “But yes I am visiting very soon. I will try to meet more and more people,” he said.
Asked if he would formally write to Hurriyat for talks, he said, “Let me reach there. I will talk to everyone,” he said.
Pertinently, Sharma’s first visit to the state had proved to be a dampener. He met several delegations however, he had to reach out to senior mainstream politicians who had refused to meet him despite getting invitations.
Even separatists and prominent trade and civil society members refused to meet Shrama on his maiden visit to Kashmir as an interlocutor.
