In the wake of the prolonged unrest in the Kashmir Valley, the Congress on Saturday held a meeting of its policy-planning group, led by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The meeting is currently underway at Singh's residence.

Jammu and Kashmir Congress Parliamentary Affairs Committee's Ghulam Ahmad Mir also attended the meet. 

The nine-member group was constituted by Congress president Sonia Gandhi after a delegation of Congress and National Conference party leaders met Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi. 

The delegation, led by Mir, also proposed visiting the state and speaking with the people of the Valley. Gandhi approved the idea.

The delegation met President Pranab Mukherjee at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and raised their concerns over the brutalities inflicted on the Kashmiri youth and urged him to direct the Centre to hold talks with all stakeholders in the matter to end the crisis in the Valley.
