You are the future; help me in bridging gap between regions: Mehbooba to students

Leh, Oct 6 (UNI) Stressing the need on more inter regional interactions in the Jammu and Kashmir, Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti on Friday appealed to student community to help her in this initiative and bring down the differences and misgivings about each other in the people of these regions. Addressing a function after distributing scooties among the meritorious students of Leh district at Eliezan Joldan Memorial College here today, the Chief Minister said the mental distances among the people of various regions of the State need to be bridged to bring them closer to each other. “You are young, our future and without any baggage. Help me in bringing regions and people closer”, she said in her appeal to students. Ms Mufti said recently during a cricket tournament at Srinagar she was happy to see a team from Ladakh. “I wish more and more such interactions by which the young people understand each other’s customs, cultures, needs and problems in a better way,” she said and added that she has travelled frequently to Ladakh region to give them a sense of participation and bring them closer to Srinagar and Jammu. Responding to the demands put forth by the college administration, the Chief Minister assured that steps for setting up a girls hostel in the college would be taken for which she asked the Chief Executive Councillor (CEC), LAHDC, Leh to look for a nearby piece of land and prepare a project report. She also assured to give a bus to the college students for the easy movement to and from the college. She assured the students that she has already asked the Vice Chancellor of Kashmir University to take steps to bridge the gap in the academic schedule of students from Ladakh and other parts of the State. She also assured the students to look into their demand of construction of an indoor stadium at Leh, given the harsh climatic conditions in the region. Earlier, the Chief Minister reached Leh on a two day visit to Ladakh region. She was given a traditional reception at the airport with the presentation of traditional Khattaks.
