Srinagar: Dineshwar Sharma, the special representative for Kashmir appointed by the Government of India (GOI), is slated to visit Jammu and Kashmir the coming Monday.
The itinerary plan of Sharma, however, is yet to be finalized.
“I am coming next week on Monday,” the special representative told Kashmir Reader. “We have not worked out the plan, whom to meet or not. We will finalize it soon.”
Earlier, the GOI appointed Sharma as its special representative and tasked him with the task of holding dialogue with all the stakeholders of Kashmir to bring what it described as “peace in the state”.
Sharma first visited Kashmir on November 6, during which he met hundreds of delegations including those from civil society, political parties and people related to other walks of life.
The special representative, who has been given the status of cabinet secretary, visited for a second time on November 24, during which he met people in south Kashmir.
After his visits, he made recommendations for the release of first-time stone pelters and also took a slew of measures including an increase in compensation for police personnel fighting militancy in Kashmir, bringing it at par with the paramilitary and army.
