It is in place to mention that PM Modi is holding a key conference in New Delhi, reportedly on the future political course of action in Jammu and Kashmir, with 14 senior politicians including four former chief ministers.

This is the first such political activity since the Centre chose to repeal Article 370 of the Constitution, which granted Jammu and Kashmir special status, on August 5, 2019.

The meeting is also being attended by Union Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, apart from the Prime Minister.

Farooq Abdullah, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Omar Abdullah, and Mehbooba Mufti are the four former chief ministers of Jammu & Kashmir who are attending the meeting.

The leaders of Jammu and Kashmir claimed they came with an open mind because the conference had no agenda.
