J&K LG says Govt will enact law to provide land, homes for poor

Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha said on Monday that a law would soon be enacted to provide land and homes to the poor lot of J&K.

“I am surprised to see that in J&K there has been no law for providing land and homes to the poor,”  the LG said at the celebrations of 450th Prakash Utsav of Goswami Shri Guru Nabha Dass Ji Maharaj in Jammu. “The J&K administration is working on it and very soon there will be a law enacted in this regard.”.

He said that the way the administration led by him provided housing facilities to migrant Kashmiri Pandits, similar facilities will be provided to government employees who are non-J&K residents.

“We will ensure that safe and secure accommodation is provided to the employees who belong to other parts of the country and are presently posted in J&K,” the LG said. “We know working in Kashmir is a bit challenging.” He said that the administration was committed to convert dreams of Prime Minister Narendera Modi about J&K into action on the ground.
