NEW DELHI: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday met Home Minister Rajnath Singh here to discuss the situation in the restive valley that has been on the boil for the past one month.

Mehbooba Mufti reached the Ministry of Home Affairs here in the afternoon to discuss the situation in the wake of the Kashmir uprising that was triggered by the killing of militant commander Burhan Wani on July 8.

The Chief Minister arrived in Delhi a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi discussed the Kashmir situation with National Security Advisor Ajeet Doval and Rajnath Singh.

Earlier on Monday, opposition parties condemned the silence of the central government over the situation in Kashmir.

Over 55 people have been killed and over 5,000 people injured in clashes between the security forces and protestors.

Reacting to the development, opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said Mehbooba has finally given up the "business as usual act".
