    New Delhi: With chaos gripping Jammu and Kashmir, the Centre is chairing an urgent cabinet meeting in the National Capital, on Monday.

    All eyes are on the Cabinet meeting which will be chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and attended by Union home minister Amit Shah and other top leaders, shortly before the Parliament session.

    While Modi also held a meeting with National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Amit Shah prior to the cabinet meeting at his residence at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg.

    Although no clarity has been offered on the matter by the Centre, a person familiar with the development stated that the point of discussion was likely to be the ongoing security situation in the valley amid speculations of the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35A, with a "major policy decision likely to be announced after the meeting," the person said.

    The scrapping of both had been a major poll plank for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls.

    In the interim, top political leaders of the state Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti have been placed under house arrest, troops deployed across Srinagar and other adjoining areas and communication lines have been suspended.
