Srinagar, Oct 8: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Monday directed Home Department’s advisory asking tourists to leave the valley be lifted from October 10.
He took this decision during situation-cum-security review meeting with the advisors and the Chief secretary. The Governor has been holding these Review Meetings on a daily basis for two hours generally from 6pm to 8 pm each day since the abrogation of Article 370.
Initially, the meetings focused on reviewing the security scenario following the imposition of restrictions after constitutional changes that were made. For the past six weeks, all the security restrictions were removed in most parts of J&K as the Governor has been focusing on bringing life back to normal.
Some of the major decisions taken in the past in these meetings include reopening of Higher Secondary Schools, Colleges and Universities, restarting public transport, opening additional travel counters at TRC Srinagar, opening 25 internet kiosks in each district to facilitate the public and Government departments and monitoring attendance in Government offices among others.
