After holding talks with Jammu and Kashmir-based parties, the Centre has now invited parties and civil society members from Kargil and Ladakh for talks on July 1.
Former MPs and members of civil society have also been invited to the meeting, slated to be held on July 1 at 11am, to be chaired by Minister of State for Home Affairs G. Kishan Reddy, at his residence.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on Thursday chaired a three-and-half-hour-long meeting with 14 political leaders from Jammu and Kashmir, including four former chief ministers.
Delimitation followed by successful elections, and the restoration of democracy in the region was emphasised upon by the Centre at the meeting. “We are committed to ensure all round development of J&K. The future of Jammu and Kashmir was discussed and the delimitation exercise and peaceful elections are important milestones in restoring statehood as promised in Parliament,” Union Home Minister Amit Shah had said in a tweet, later.
