Dr Manmohan Singh-led congress group to arrive in Kashmir on Saturday

A Congress delegation led by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will visit Srinagar tomorrow for a series of meetings on the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir, Congress state unit president G A Mir said today. "It will now visit Srinagar for a fresh round of talks", he said.

The other members of the delegation-Congress policy group- are: P Chidambaram, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ambika Soni and Karan Singh.

During the series of meetings that the Union home minister had with CRPF, BSF Army and Special Operations Group of J&K Police, Mr Singh directed them to nearly double their operations as the number of active militants in the Valley has dropped to less than 200 and eliminating a majority of them would have a huge impact in improving the overall security situation in the state.
