Srinagar: Centre’s special envoy for J&K Dineshwar Sharma today arrived at north Kashmir’s Baramulla district to talk to the various groups of people, reports said. Sharma is expected to meet about thirty to forty delegations at the Dak Bunglow in Baramulla town.
Earlier, Sharma on Monday visited Kupwara district where he met hosts of delegations including the family of slain cab driver Asif Iqbal Bhat, who was allegedly killed by the Indian Army earlier this month during an encounter.
The other delegations apprised Sharma, the former Director of Intelligence Bureau, about the problems faced by them during heightened tension along the Line of Control or during a cordon off by security forces and search operations carried out by the Army.
Employment, lack of power supply and non-availability of food grains especially during the winter months also figured during the discussions with Sharma.
The Centre’s representative had announced earlier that he will be travelling to the Valley during the harsh winters. Tomorrow he is expected to meet people in Baramulla in north Kashmir.
Shrama is on his third visit to the Kashmir Valley after being appointed as the Centre’s representative for talks with various groups on Kashmir in October this year.
