Addresses ‘Badlte Bharat mein Nikhrata Kashmir’ event organized in memory of outstanding writer Dushyant Kumar at Meerut
Srinagar: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha today said that the rule of social justice and equality has been established in Jammu and Kashmir and this process of transformation is offering a fertile ground for individual growth.
Addressed an event ‘Badlte Bharat mein Nikhrata Kashmir’ organized in memory of one of the outstanding writers Dushyant Kumar at Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, LG said that Kumar made an enormous contribution to enrich the literary and cultural heritage of the country, an official communiqué issued here this evening said.
It said that LG appreciated the Dushyant Kumar Foundation for organizing a seminar on the changing scenario of Kashmir in the virtuous memory of the great literary personality.
“Dushyant Kumar’s creative expression reflects J&K’s cultural pluralism. His timeless words are full of hope for social equality, and overall transformation of society, which is being witnessed by the J&K UT after a long wait of 70 years,” the communiqué quoted LG saying.
The communiqué further quoted Sinha saying that the People of J&K were deprived of development. Vested interests kept J&K away from progress and prosperity for seven decades.
“In August 2019, Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi fulfilled the dreams of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee and connected the people of Jammu Kashmir with the mainstream of development,” observed the LG as per the communiqué.
Detailing the developments in J&K, LG told the gathering that in the last three years, his administration has overcome many difficulties and there has been a significant improvement in the situation in UT.
“Terror-free, corruption-free, transparent system has replaced uncertainty, nepotism and corruption. The rule of social justice and equality has been established. This process of transformation is offering a fertile ground for individual growth,” said Sinha.
The Industrial scene in J&K has changed dramatically in the last two years and investments continue to flow for economic activities that guarantee social welfare and stability, LG told the gathering as per the communiqué.
“Jammu Kashmir has taken a giant leap in infrastructure development and sharply improved socio-economic parameters. We have embarked on several major initiatives in developing our social infrastructure to provide world-class amenities to people living in the far-flung areas of UT,” the communiqué quoted LG saying.
Highlighting the major strides made in all the priority sectors, the Lt Governor said that the UT of J&K has registered massive improvements in various development parameters and is now emerging as one of the leading states/UTs.
“Today one of the main objectives of the administration is to eradicate disparities in society and different regions of UT. The successes and accomplishments in different sectors since August 2019 is a matter of great joy and pride for our citizens,” LG was quoted saying.
