Two days ago, when the meeting of the leaders of Jammu and Kashmir was going on under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on that day the son of Jammu and Kashmir’s Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha was getting married. Why are we mentioning this thing here.. Maybe because when Manoj Sinha was sent as the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir in August last year, then suddenly the question arose.
After 370 it’s time to take the policies on the ground
After the removal of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir, the biggest challenge before the central government was to implement the policies of the Center and win the trust of the people there. Satya Pal Malik and then Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Girish Chandra Murmu were made the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, but there were some shortcomings which the central government also realized. There was no connection with the public, as well as the escalation of controversy after any statement was also a matter of concern. At such a time, there was a need for such a person as Lieutenant Governor who is also an expert player of politics.
Ever since Manoj Sinha took over the responsibility of the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, his first effort has been to go directly to the people. He spent most of his time in public. During this, he also went to many such places where other leaders did not reach there even with the heavy security cordon earlier. He listened to the people and tried his best to assure that every effort is being made here for your good. He did not confine himself to the Raj Bhavan, nor did he make any controversial statement that would create a ruckus.
Trying to negotiate with the leaders along with the public
In the last 13 months since Manoj Sinha became the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, he went among the people as well as met the leaders of the leaders there. Efforts were on to hold talks from the National Conference to leaders of other parties as well. The biggest challenge before Manoj Sinha was at the time of DDC elections. The elections were conducted peacefully. The special thing is that due to electoral violence, in Jammu and Kashmir, where the Lok Sabha elections of Anantnag could not be held for 3 years, voting took place in a peaceful manner in the DDC elections. As a result of this, along with the people there, the confidence of the political parties was also established.
For the first time after the abrogation of 370 under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a meeting was held with all the parties of Jammu and Kashmir. A total of 18 representatives from Jammu and Kashmir attended the meeting at the Prime Minister’s residence. The first meeting was after so many days but the discussion took place in a very productive atmosphere. All the leaders who came to attend this meeting praised Manoj Sinha. These leaders demanded from Prime Minister Modi to make him a governor and give full statehood.
better work in corona era
During the Corona period, Manoj Sinha kept a close watch on health services. The situation was handled better there and now his effort is to provide maximum employment to the youth there. In the program Awam Ki Awaaz, broadcast on local channels of All India Radio, Sinha said recently that his administration has also decided to set up youth clubs in each panchayat through which they will be able to engage in creative work. Sinha said that the Jammu and Kashmir administration has completely transformed into an e-office, ending the hundreds of years old tradition of court transfers. Under this, the secretariat was transferred between Jammu and Srinagar every six months. Now the Jammu and Srinagar secretariat can do normal work for 12 months in a year, he said. With this, the government will save Rs 200 crore every year, which will be used for the welfare of the people.
