Srinagar: An all-party meeting convened by Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti was held on Thursday to review the situation in the violence-hit Valley and find a way out of the unrest that has left 43 people dead and 3,400 injured.

Main opposition National Conference did not participate in the meeting. The party had on Wednesday announced its decision to boycott, saying actions in the recent past have shown there was no “effective leadership” in the state government.
