Dineshwar Sharma, Government of India’s “representative” for dialogue in Jammu and Kashmir, Thursday met Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and Governor N N Vohra as he began his second visit to the state.
During the meeting in Jammu, he briefed the chief minister about the schedule of deliberations during his stay in the state, an official spokesman said.
In his meeting with Vohra at the Raj Bhawan, Sharma discussed the “significant geopolitical developments in the region since his last visit to the state,” the spokesman said.
Earlier, Sharma met delegations of Kashmiri Pandits at the Jagti camp on the outskirts of Jammu city.
He visited several households in the area where people apprised him of their problems, news agency PTI quoting officials said. Sharma, who visited Srinagar and Jammu earlier this month, will be in the state for the next four days.
The officials said that Sharma would also meet people who came from West Pakistan immediately after Partition in 1947 and settled in Jammu. There are nearly three lakh such people.
Sharma, a former Intelligence Bureau chief, was appointed by the Indian government on October 23 to hold talks with all “stakeholders” and “understand the legitimate aspirations of people.”
