"The policy planning group will visit Jammu and Kashmir next month. The group will arrive in Srinagar on November 10," Jammu and Kashmir Congress president GA Mir told PTI.

The group had visited the state twice in September and held interactions with dozens of groups, including representatives of political parties, traders and journalists, in Jammu and Srinagar, but the Ladakh visit of the group had not been finalised at that time, he added.

"This time, the group members, to be led by former Union home minister P Chidambaram, will visit Kargil and Leh also to hold interactions with various groups, political and social organisations, including trade bodies, to take stock of the overall socio-political scenario in the state," Mir said.
