The meeting is slated at 12 noon. Presidential candidate Yashwant Sinha is expected to take part in the meeting. The meeting is likely to be attended by senior leaders of PDP, Congress, CPI(M) and ANC. Later, Sinha will hold a press conference.
The meeting has been called to discuss several issues including the present situation in Jammu and Kashmir. “The meeting is also part of the campaign of Yashwant Sinha regarding Presidential elections,” they said.
Yashwant Sinha is the opposition candidate for the president’s position in India. Interestingly, Jammu and Kashmir will not participate in the polling because it has no assembly in place. However, that does not prevent Sinha from flying to Srinagar and meeting the political stakeholders.
