The LG Sinha added the Jammu and Kashmir is witnessing gigantic changes due to which youth have reposed their faith on the mainstream. He said the J&K has lost numerous lives in past due to turmoil carried out by militants and their handlers sitting across. 

"In turbulent times only poor families lost their sons. Neither a politician nor a rich  man's son lost his life. They enjoyed their lives abroad and got higher education.
