On the status of J&K, all party gathering will be held on Thursday in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The PM will mark his presence in the meeting from his residence, New Delhi around 3 pm today afternoon. After removal of Article 370 that grants the special status to J&K, it will be Centre’s first step to reach out to the parties after it was scrapped 2 years ago. The scrapping of the special status led to the bifurcation into three union territories, Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh.

The meeting will be attended by conventionally established grand old parties of Jammu and Kashmir. The Centre has invited all the mainstream politicians as well as former chief ministers of Jammu and Kashmir. Meeting will be attended by four well known political leaders Mehbooba Mufti, Farooq Abdullah, and Gulab Nabi Azad. Meanwhile Kashmir Pandits have make specific demands seeking representation in J&K. Pandits were upset over no invitation to the PM’s all party meet today.

J&K Congress President, Gulam Ahmad Mir stated “No specific agenda for today’s meet. As we are told it is a free and open debate.” The Centre hasn’t considered Ikjutt Jammu for the meeting raising questions on inviting the Gupkar parties in the meet. Ikjutt Jammu, Jammu based political party is planning for the protest if such ignorance will be continued from the Centre.
