Union Home Minister Amit Shah met a delegation of politicians from Jammu and Kashmir. The delegation consisted of members of the Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party, a new front founded by Syed Altaf Bukhari. The meeting took place a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi met the 24-member team. Bukhari launched the new party on March 8, 2020, seven months after the abrogation of J&K's special status and the Parliament's decision to bifurcate the state into two Union Territories. Bukhari said that he discussed restoration of J&K's statehood, the detention of politicians, fear of demographic change, and delimitation ahead of Assembly polls in the UT.
