Srinagar, Aug 24: Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh will embark on a two day visit to Jammu and Kashmir to find a solution to the ongoing unrest which began in the aftermath of the Burhan Wani encounter.

The Home Minister is unlikely to meet leaders of the Hurriyat Conference, but will focus on employment generation for the youth of Kashmir.

Rajnath to lay emphasis on employment

Home Ministry officials tell OneIndia that Singh will engage with civil society members to find a way out of the problem. Singh would however, lay emphasis on employment generation for the youth who have since the past 46 days taken to the street in protest.

While experts would note that the centre has to engage with the Hurriyat Conference, there appears to be no such move. The priority would be to instil confidence in the youth.

The tone was set also by army chief, General Dalbir Singh who while in the Valley on Tuesday asked security forces to uphold human rights.

Singh will propose the three pronged strategy of the government to find a solution to the Kashmir crisis. He would advocate the need of sending civil rights groups to speak with the protestors.

Further he would assure that the use of the pellet gun would be minimised. Lastly an all party delegation would be sent to Kashmir to find a solution to the crisis.
