Prime Minister Manmohan Singh chaired a high-powered meeting on Monday night to discuss modalities to set up a committee to ascertain whether troops withdrawal in Jammu and Kashmir was warranted or not.
Besides Dr Singh, the meeting was attended by Defence Minister A K Antony, Army Chief J J Singh, National Security Advisor M K Narayanan and others to work out a mechanism to assess whether troops withdrawal was feasible in summer months when snow melts from the mountain passes and are easy for infilitration, sources said.
