Srinagar: Former external affairs minister of India Yashwant Sinha-led Track II team, presently on ‘Peace Mission 3.0’ to Kashmir Valley, met state’s governor here on Friday.
Sinha, the senior BJP leader, was accompanied by Sushobha Barve, Executive Director, Centre for Dialogue and Reconciliation (CDR), Air Vice Marshal (Retd) Kapil Kak and Bharat Bhushan former Editor and senior journalist, during his meeting with Governor N.N. Vohra at the Raj Bhawan.
Sinha and his team are visiting the Valley to talk to the leaders of various parties and groups about the issues facing J&K, an official spokesman said.
“Sinha shared his experiences with the Governor who stressed the importance of the regional parties in J&K and all the stakeholders, particularly the civil society, playing a lead role for securing restoration of peace and normalcy,” the spokesman added.
Sinha and his delegation have already met National Conference President Farooq Abdullah and Working President and former chief minister Omar Abdullah in Srinagar.
This is third time when Sinha-led team has embarked on Mission Kashmir. Last year at the height of unrest, the team visited Valley and met separatist leaders including chairmen of parallel factions of Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq who had earlier slammed doors on the All Party Delegation (APD) members when they tried to call on them during the unrest following the killing of Hizb commander Burhan Wani.
