Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh currently on a two-day visit to the Valley met many delegations on Saturday at the Nehru Guest House in Srinagar.

Official sources said these delegations included members of the civil society, clerics, Sikh, Pandit community members and traders.


Important local trade and industry bodies including the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) and Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) decided not to meet the Union Home Minister despite an invitation from him.

Reports said Rajnath Singh told the delegations that the ongoing unrest was triggered by “forces from across the border”.

“While deciding to evolve a mechanism to engage the people of Kashmir in a dialogue process to work out solutions for the problems faced by them, the Union Home Minister does not favour an engagement with the separatists who take their directions from across the border,” official sources said.

Rajnath Singh had a detailed discussion with state Governor N.N.Vohra.

However, the Congress party has decided not to call on the minister.

Anyone who visited the site could see photos of two students side-by-side and choose who among the two was "hot" or "not." Facemash opened on October 28, 2003, but a few days later, it was closed.
