Srinagar: Governor Satya Pal Malik on Friday recalled the contributions of Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah, former Chief Minister of J&K, on his death anniversary.
In a message, Governor referred to the crucial Land Reforms pioneered by Sheikh Abdullah, which had laid the foundations of equitable development of the State, and the high priority which he had devoted to the establishment of health and education facilities.
Malik observed that best tribute which could be paid to Sheikh Sahib would be for the people to work with a missionary zeal for strengthening J&K’s deep rooted secular traditions and the bonds of communal harmony, brotherhood and amity, for ensuring peace, progress and prosperity in the State.
Meanwhile, the union government appointed interlocutor Dineshwar Sharma called on Governor Malik at the Raj Bhavan and apprised him about his ongoing discussions across the cross section of society.
Governor and Sharma discussed a range of issues relating to the internal security situation, developmental scenario and initiatives required for protecting and promoting the educational and career interests of youth.
