India’s Modi to hold first talks with Kashmir leaders since removal of autonomy | Source: Reuters

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses a gathering before flagging off the “Dandi March”, or Salt March, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence, in Ahmedabad, India, March 12, 2021.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold face-to-face talks with top political leaders from Jammu and Kashmir, the first such meeting since his government revoked the region’s autonomy in 2019. India said carving its only Muslim majority state into two federally administered territories in August 2019 was needed to spur development in the Himalayan region, where an armed insurgency has raged for decades against New Delhi’s rule.
