Today, the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir 'Omar Abdullah' met the Governor 'Satya Pal Malik' at Raj Bhavan in Srinagar to talk about the tense scenario of the state. After a week when an unprecedented travel advisory was given to Amarnath Yatra pilgrims and an extra 25,000 paramilitary troops relocated to the Kashmir Valley, the centre plans to cancel Article 35A, which grants unique rights to Jammu and Kashmir citizens.

After the meeting, Umar Abdullah said that they had not any idea what was happening. So a delegation in which he had there too met the governor and they asked why it was happening. They also asked the governor about the rumours of Article 35A and Article 370 bought removed. To which he had assured that not anything was happening.
Mr Abdullah's meeting with the governor arrives one day after the Jammu and Kashmir state govt-issued an unprecedented instruction requesting that Amarnath Yatra pilgrims and visitors "instantly" cut off their stay in the Kashmir Valley and leave the country.
Earlier Umar Abdullah and a National Conference delegation also meet the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The delegation had urged the Prime Minister to refrain from upsetting the Kashmir Valley's fragile condition.
Over the past week, tensions in Jammu and Kashmir have risen, with news that an additional 25,000 paramilitary personnel are to be moved to the Valley. 10,000 troops were dispatched the week before-in what the centre claimed to be a security drive.
