The minister's tour is planned in the garb of a review of the skill development-cum-placement programme, Himayat, which enjoys patronage of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.
The programme's target is to train and place 1 lakh youth from J&K in organised sectors over five years (2011-12 to 2016-17).
Ramesh is awaiting clearance from the central security agencies but has already received a green signal from the state administration.
The Kashmir Valley is under curfew following Afzal's hanging but the minister thinks deferring political interventions may play a spoilsport and stresses on the immediate need to reach out to the locals.
Apart from Srinagar, some other J&K towns may also feature in his schedule.
Although the sudden hanging bears the potential to jeopardise the fragile normalcy in Kashmir, the plan to visit the state comes in the backdrop of Centre's recent measures to expedite the development in the state.
