"Today every citizen of J&K is living with peace," said the LG, praising the citizens for embracing a peaceful life. He noted a remarkable shift in the region's social dynamics, with people now confidently spending their evenings outside in markets and parks, rather than rushing home at sunset as before.Click Here To Follow Our WhatsApp Channel

The abrogation of Article 370 on August 5, 2019, led to the reorganization of the erstwhile state of J&K into two UTs, Ladakh and J&K. The LG attributed the visible positive changes on the ground to the failure of Pakistan-backed propaganda, emphasizing that the people have wholeheartedly embraced peace.

"The biggest change is visible on the ground as people are living freely after so many decades," declared Manoj Sinha, recognizing the significance of the achievement. However, he also expressed optimism, stating that this was only the beginning of the UT's progress

In his commitment to empowering the youth, the LG shared the initiatives taken under the mission youth. He revealed that the J&K administration has joined forces with the Mumbai Stock Exchange to provide more opportunities for young people to excel in various fields. As a result, hundreds of youth are now actively shaping their future and showcasing their talents.(KNS)
