Srinagar: Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president Ram Vilas Paswan is likely to meet separatist Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Geelani Tuesday before the all-party delegation from Delhi leaves for Jammu.

Paswan has reportedly expressed his desire to meet Geelani at his uptown Hyderpora residence.

Some members of the delegation called on Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Yasin Malik Monday in order to reach out to separatists to help end the cycle of violence in the Kashmir Valley that has seen 102 civilians die in 103 days, mainly in clashes between protesters and security forces.
Geelani has underlined a five-point agenda that includes acceptance of Jammu and Kashmir as an international dispute before a dialogue can start between New Delhi and the separatists.
