SRI NAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah would not be holding any one-to-one meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his one-day visit to the state on Friday.

The CM would also skip the security review meeting to be chaired by the PM in Srinagar. The Prime Minister would arrive on a one-day visit to the state on Friday.

He would reach Jammu in the morning and fly to Katra, base camp of Vaishno Devi shrine, to flag off the Katra-Udhampur-New Delhi train. 

Later, Modi would fly to the Army’s 15 corps headquarters at Badamibagh cantonment in Srinagar, where he would chair a security review meeting.

Governor N N Vohra, Northern Army Command Chief Lt Gen D S Hooda, GoC of 16 Corps, Lt Gen K H Singh, GoC 15 Corps, Lt Gen Subrata Saha and GoC 14 Corps Lt Gen B S Negi,  besides top police, paramilitary and civil officials would attend the meeting.

Sources said Omar, who had strongly campaigned against Modi during the parliamentary elections, would not be attending the meeting, which would discuss the prevailing situation in the state, especially in Kashmir and measures taken to prevent infiltration of militants from across the LoC.
