SRINAGAR, SEP 17: A Congress delegation, led by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, concluded its two-day visit to Kashmir today, after holding discussions on the current situation in the valley with a large number of delegations representing a cross section of society.
The party’s ‘policy planning group on J&K affairs’ returned to New Delhi this afternoon after two days of meetings and interactions with various groups, Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Commi-ttee (JKPCC) president G A Mir told reporters.
Mir said over 54 delegations and groups, involving about 1,200 people, met the panel.
