Union home minister Amit Shah will discuss the consolidation of recent military and non-military gains on Wednesday on his trip to Kashmir. He may also ask governor Satyapal Malk about the developments which led him to the conclusion that leaders of the separatist Hurriyat Conference were ready for a meaningful dialogue with the Centre.

Home secretary Rajiv Gauba and Amit Shah will fly to Srinagar on Wednesday afternoon and return on Thursday.

A senior government official told Hindustan Times that the home minister will review the situation in the state and the progress of other development projects undertaken by the Centre.

The home minister will also take a meeting of the Unified Command to review steps taken for a peaceful and terror-free Amarnath Yatra. The Unified Command comprises of the Indian Army, Border Security Force (BSF), Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the state police.

The official also added that Shah is unlikely to take up the contentious issue of abrogating Article 370 and 35A of the Indian Constitution which accords special status to Jammu and Kashmir in his first visit to Kashmir as a home minister.
