Rajnath Singh arrived in Srinagar on Sunday on a four-day visit to the territory.
Sources further said that during his visit to the state, where he will be accompanied by Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba and senior officers of Ministry of Home Affairs, Mr Singh will meet Governor N N Vohra and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
Singh said he met 55 delegations during this visit and was always ready to meet anyone without reservations.
The Union Home Minister also visited the Jammu and Kashmir Police Lines and CRPF camp in Anantnag district.
He said that he would continue to meet every stakeholder in Jammu and Kashmir in the Centre's effort to find lasting solutions to the issues confronting the State. He said said that keeping in mind the safety of police personnel who were working in a challenging environment, we have ordered for bullet proof vehicles at all police stations in Jammu and Kashmir. "This is my appeal to everyone: If you have any complaint or grievance, approach me freely. Let people, who want to talk, say they are ready for talks".

The alliance failed to make any progress on the issues mentioned in the agenda of alliance, even though a group of ministers (GOMs) was constituted during the tenure of Sayeed on April 2015 to pursue its implementation with the central government.
"The premiers of neighbouring countries including Pakistan were invited in oath-taking ceremony of Modi government". The intent was clear that we invited them not for shaking hands but for heart to heart relations. "We're applying the same formula to end violence in the Valley", he said.
"Pakistan is doing it since long and in 2014 too it heavily shelled the border villages", he said and added that he then told to the Director General BSF that no bullet will be fired first from Indian side but if Pakistan starts firing, India will not count its bullets.
Asked if he was willing to talk to the separatists as well, he said, "I would like to talk to all the stakeholders". We have not said ever that we don't want good relations with our neighbour. "The trees of peace haven't dried up yet and would turn green again, restoring the tag of "heaven on earth" for the Valley", he hoped.
At the press conference, Singh was flanked by Jitendra Singh, Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office, and Nirmal Singh, Deputy Chief Minister and BJP leader of J&K.
