Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday briefed PM Narendra Modi, who on Monday night returned to New Delhi from the G20 summit in China, about the all party delegation’s  visit to  Jammu and Kashmir in a bid to improve the security and  law and order in the violence-torn state.

Further Singh briefed  Modi on the assessment of the ground situation of the state by the all party delegation which visited Srinagar and Jammu for two days, media reported.

Addressing  media-persons, Singh earlier said: “Everybody wants the situation in Kashmir to improve.There is no doubt that Jammu and Kashmir is, has and will be an integral part of India.”

“We are willing to speak with anyone who wants piece in Kashmir and the Centre and state are working to alleviate the situation here,” said Singh.

“When I had come here on 24 and 25 July.People complained to me about the pellet guns. I had then said that I was instituting a committee to decide on an alternative in two months. It’s not even been two months and the suggestion of non-lethal PAVA shells has emerged. I believe those won’t cause any deaths or injure to people,” Singh added.

Rajnath Singh, who led the delegation of 26 MPs from 20 parties, reached New Delhi late on Monday.

He disagreed with critics that the visit was a failure.

Singh said the team had “very good interactions” with individuals and groups and that it would meet in Delhi and discuss a future action plan.
