Members of all-party delegation to Kashmir go into a huddle 
 Meeting of all-party delegation to Kashmir is underway in Delhi. At the meeting called by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar and chaired by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, the itinerary of the visit will be shared with the members, who will also hold discussions on the prospective meetings in Kashmir. 

 The all-party delegation led by Singh will visit Jammu and Kashmir on September 4 and is expected to meet a cross section of people, individuals and organisations as an effort to restore peace back in the state. The delegation will have 28 parliamentarians and senior government officials. 

 The delegation may include Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Food and Public Distribution Minister Ram Vilas Paswan, Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mallikarjun Kharge as well as opposition leaders like Asaduddin Owaisi of AIMIM. Curfew has been imposed in the valley ever since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8.
