Rajnath Singh to leave for Pakistan today

New Delhi, Aug 3 (IBNS): Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is all set to leave for Pakistan on Wednesday.

He will visit the neighbouring nation to attend the seventh Saarc interior ministers’ meeting in Islamabad.

The MEA had earlier clarified that Singh will not attend any bilateral meeting with Pakistan during his visit to the country.

MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup earlier tweeted: "Let me categorically state that @HMOIndia is going for SAARC event. There will be no bilateral meetings w/ Pakistan."

His visit takes place amid a continuing tension with Pakistan on the issue of instigating cross border violence after the reported encounter death of terrorist Burhan Wani  last month.

Exalting Wani as a martyr Pakistan has  accused India of taking recourse to  violation of human rights in the Kashmir Valley to suppress people's demonstrations.

In an aggressive payback, India had said that the "dream of Kashmir becoming Pakistan" will not be realized even "to the end of eternity".

Pakistan's "unabashed embrace of terrorism" and its use of "dirty money" were highlighted by Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj as she stressed, "All of Kashmir belongs to India."

Normal life has been badly hit and several people have died due to the violence in the Kashmir Valley following the death of Wani.
