Kashmir has been on the boil for over one month now, with life remaining paralyzed as the authorities clamp curfew and restriction in parts of Kashmir for the 31st consecutive day on Monday

With the situation in Jammu and Kashmir showing no signs of return to normalcy with curfew in place for last 31 days, troubled Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti met Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday. She was in the national capital to discuss the situation in the restive Valley that has been on the boil for the past one month.

Mehbooba Mufti reached the Ministry of Home Affairs here in the afternoon to discuss the situation in the wake of the Kashmir uprising that was triggered by the killing of militant commander Burhan Wani on July 8.

The Chief Minister arrived in Delhi a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi discussed the Kashmir situation with National Security Advisor Ajeet Doval and Rajnath Singh.

Earlier on Monday, Opposition parties condemned the silence of the Central government over the situation in Kashmir.
