Shah would spend the night at Raj Bhavan.
On Thursday morning, the Home Minister would first meet the Panchayat members and later address Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers.
Both the events would take place at Sher-i-Kashmir International Conference Centre (SKICC).
Talking to Rising Kashmir, BJP General Secretary Ashok Koul said the main agenda of the party’s interaction with Shah would be to discuss its functioning in Kashmir including its membership drive.
“The main focus of our meeting will be on how to expand our membership drive in the valley. The idea is to encourage party cadres to work at grassroots level,” he said.
On dialogue with Hurriyat, Koul said the BJP was always ready for dialogue as long as it is under the ambit of Indian constitution.
Shah is also scheduled to meet various delegations during his stay in the Valley.
He will also pay obeisance at the Amarnath cave shrine in south Kashmir during his visit before heading back to New Delhi.
Earlier, Shah was scheduled to visit the Valley for a day long visit on June 30. However, the visit has been advanced due to his busy schedule connected with the Union Budget.
This will be his first visit to the militancy-hit State after taking over as Home Minister of India.
