Holiday be declared on Sept. 23: Sh. Ramesh Arora

BJP MLC Adv. Ramesh Arora stated that we are committed to the resolution passed by Legislative Council on January 24, 2017 and Council have expressed stand that there should be holiday on September 23 on the birthday of Maharaja Hari Singh. Role of Maharaja and contribution cannot be ignored. He is the person who brought High Court in the State even prior to independence and not only this he was nationalist, reformer, secular and having enacted many laws to run the system. He was a visionary person and tried to remove untouchability, he also brought reforms in child marriage system, he was against caste discrimination.
Ramesh Arora further said that not only this he signed instrument of accession and we will remain obliged as he decided to merge with India. We celebrate the birthday of Sheikh Mohd. Abdullah although he was tallest leader of Kashmir region and blue-eyed leader of Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru. Then why, we cannot celebrate by way of declaring holiday, the birthday of great man.
Arora has taken up matter not only as a Chief Whip of Legislative Council with his colleagues MLCs, he has taken up the issue with GAD, Law Department with Ministers of both parties PDP and BJP. He has asked Secretary GAD that he should place proceeding for decision before State Chief Minister or before Cabinet because the matter is already delayed inspite of the fact that Law Department has already given its opinion. He further said that under negotiable instrument act Section 5 explanation says that GAD has to issue formal notification, Secretary GAD assured that needful will be done within a day. Arora said that Late Mufti Mohd. Sayeed was of the opinion that Jammu & Kashmir should come close to each other and it the only way to reduce differences within and with others.
Chief Minister of the State always follows the basic ideas of Mutfi Mohd. Sayeed and Arora is confident that on September 23 holiday will be declared without further delay.
Arora further said that it will be great tribute to Late Maharaja Hari Singh and administrative order be issued without further delay and it will bring both regions close to each other and will give a message that we respect the sentiments of all three regions and our government is committed for equitable treatment to all regions.
