Government will consult all political parties before finalising an itinerary for the tour aimed at restoring peace in the Kashmir Valley, which is witnessing violent protests even since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani on July 8.

The move comes after Home Minister Rajnath Singh announced in Srinagar on Friday that he had asked Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to make preparation for the visit. Sources said the visit of the all party delegation to Jammu and Kashmir is expected to be discussed when Mehbooba will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday.

The facilitation of the all party delegation to the troubled state is considered to be an attempt by the government to bring the political parties on board of the process initiated to bring peace in Jammu and Kashmir. There has been feeling in the government that unrest continues for too long - 48 days - and normalcy needs to be restored as early as possible.
