Nirmala Sitharaman’s First State visit to JK
Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is visiting Jammu and Kashmir on Friday to take stock of the security situation and review preparedness of soldiers on borders. She is also expected to visit Siachen on September 30.
During her visit, she is expected to meet senior commanders as well. This will be Nirmala Sitharaman’s first visit to the state after she assumed office as the Defence Minister earlier this month.
