Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who led an all-party delegation to Jammu and Kashmir to assess the situation, today briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the two-day visit.

The Home Minister, in an hour long meeting, apprised PM Modi about the ground situation of the state assessed by the all-party delegation which visited Srinagar and Jammu on September 4 and 5.

"Briefed the Prime Minister on all-party delegation's visit to J&K and also apprised him of the situation in the state," Singh said in a tweet after the meeting at the Prime Minster's residence.

While the Prime Minister returned to the capital last night after his visit to Vietnam and China, the Home Minister too had come back from Jammu and Kashmir last evening.

Sources said the members of the all-party delegation are likely to meet here tomorrow to discuss their findings during their visit and chalk out future plans for Jammu and Kashmir.

The all-party delegation seeking to end the turbulence in Kashmir concluded its visit yesterday with no breakthrough.

In Jammu, Singh yesterday said that the team had very good interactions with individuals and groups and that it would meet in Delhi and discuss the future action plan.

The delegation was in Srinagar on Sunday and had visited Jammu before returning to Delhi.

Unhappy at the stubborn refusal of Hurriyat leaders to meet some MPs who had literally knocked at their doors in Srinagar, the Home Minister had said that their conduct was against "democracy, humanity or even 'Kashmiriyat' (Kashmiri ethos)".

Before winding up the visit, the Home Minister sent out a clear message to separatists, asserting that Jammu and Kashmir will always remain an integral part of India.

He, however, said as far as talks are concerned, doors are open to all who want peace and normalcy.

At least 75 persons have been killed and over 12,000 injured in the weeks of the turmoil, the deadliest Kashmir has seen in six years.
