Ahead of his four-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said the government was ready to discuss the Kashmir issue with all stakeholders in the state.

“I personally want that we talk to everyone. So whoever comes to meet me, I will talk to them,” Singh told reporters here.

Singh, who begins his visit on Saturday, said the government has “all the intentions” to solve the Kashmir issue.

He will be accompanied by newly-appointed Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba and senior ministry officials.
