Rajnath to embark two-day visit to Ladakh tomorrow

New Delhi, [India] Oct 2, : Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will undertake a two-day visit of the Ladakh region from tomorrow.

During his tour, he is scheduled to hold meetings with various delegations in Leh on October 3 and in the Kargil on October 4.

This will be the Home Minister's fourth visit to Jammu and Kashmir in the recent past. Singh, while concluding his all party meeting last month, had promised that he would soon visit Leh Ladakh.

Asking the people of Ladakh that he will soon hold talks with them as well, Singh last month said, "I know when we talk about the state of Jammu and Kashmir, we talk about three regions -Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh.

The delegation has already visited Kashmir; Jammu too has been covered; and soon, I will try to visit Ladakh to hold direct talks with people over there." Singh last month had led an all-party delegation to Srinagar and Jammu on September 4-5, 2016.

The delegation met over 400 persons in about 50 different delegations from various sections of society in Srinagar and Jammu.
