New Delhi : Senior ministers Sushma Swaraj, Rajnath Singh and Arun Jaitley and National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval held a meeting on Friday ahead of their briefing to opposition leaders on the border stand-off with China and the Kashmir situation.

The meeting held at Home Minister Rajnath Singh's residence here was also attended by BJP President Amit Shah. Rajiv Gauba, who will take over as Home Secretary on August 30, was also present. The meeting lasted for over two hours. 

Informed sources said the meeting went over the points to be discussed with the opposition leaders on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir in the wake of the killing of Amarnath pilgrims and the military stand-off in the Doklam Plateau adjoining the tri-junction between India, China and Bhutan. 

The opposition is likely to raise the two issues during Parliament's monsoon session that begins on Monday.
