National Security Advisor Ajit Doval has left for Jammu and Kashmir to review the situation on the ground after the Modi government revoked Article 370 which gave special status to the state. The government also proposed that the state be bifurcated into two union territories, Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

Earlier, Doval attended the meeting of Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s residence in the national capital. Union Home Minister Amit Shah was also present at the meeting. 

Doval, in June, attended the meeting of Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s residence in the national capital. Union Home Minister Amit Shah was also present at the meeting.

Earlier in June, he had chaired a high-level meeting to discuss issues concerning Kashmir, including the forthcoming Amarnath Yatra and pending Assembly election.

The meeting was attended by Vijay Kumar, Advisor to the Jammu and Kashmir Governor, State Chief Secretary BVR Subrahmanyam, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat, Director General of CRPF R R Bhatnagar and Director General of Police Dilbag Singh, official said.

This was the first meeting of Doval on Kashmir after assuming the charge of National Security Advisor for a second term on June 2.
