SRINAGAR: J&KLieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Monday disclosed that the


will announce a set of measures to revive business and other ailing sectors “within a week”.

Addressing a press conference at the Raj Bhawan here, Sinha said, “For past 15 to 20 years, every sector has suffered losses… The

He also assured a fair probe into the July 18 Amshipora encounter at two separate levels —administration and army. The army had claimed that they killed three “terrorists”. However, a month later the families of the deceased claimed that the slain were their wards, who had gone to


for work.

Sinha also said that ‘public durbars’ will be held every Wednesday at divisional and sub-divisional levels across J&K where the

The ‘Back to Village’ programme will commence from October 2, he added. The programme is aimed to involve the people of the


territory and government officials in a joint effort to deliver equitable development.
