Rajnath will meet the stakeholders and hold a press conference.On his four-day visit, the Home Minister is also scheduled to hold talks with the officials of the state and discuss the current situation.

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said on Sunday Union home minister Rajanth Singh rushed to the state only after the Congress announced its schedule.

The Union Home Minister asked the authorities to expedite the implementation of the PMDP in a time bound manner. However, he said, no power in the world can stop from bringing peace in Kashmir.

Rajnath Singh arrived in Srinagar on Sunday on a four-day visit to the territory. He said PMDP includes assistance for completely damaged or partially damaged houses due to 2014 floods and the project costing Rs 1200 crores is now complete.

Last year, hardly any notable person from the civil society or Kashmir Inc. had met Rajnath when he visited the Valley during the agitation that had followed the death of Hizb commander Burhan Wani.

The Congress team has come to assess the ground situation and to see what the ruling coalition has achieved and what it has lost in the past almost three years, he said.

They are also expected to meet the delegations of farmers, Gujjars, Paharis, schedule caste and schedule tribe, the spokesperson said. In another incident a local Hizbul Mujahideen "district commander" Shahid Sheikh was killed in an encounter in Reban village near Sopore in North Kashmir.

The announcement comes in the backdrop of reports that SHO Feroz Dar, who was killed along with five other policemen on June 16 in an attack by militants in Achabal area of Anantnag had requisitioned a bullet-proof vehicle, but was not provided one.
