J&K to withdraw travel advisory from tomorrow

According to a report in The ET, Jammu and Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik has asked the state home department to withdraw the advisory to tourists to leave the valley. According to an official statement of the J&K administration, the order will be withdrawn on Thursday, a little over two months after it was issued. The governor’s directive follows a situation-cum-security review meeting he held with advisers and the chief secretary. 

“For the past six weeks, all security restrictions were removed in most parts of J&K and the governor has been focusing on bringing life back to normal,” an official statement said. Reopening of higher secondary schools colleges and universities, restarting public transport, opening additional travel counters at Tourist Reception Centre, Srinagar, setting up 25 internet kiosks in each district were some of the key decisions taken during the earlier security reviews. The governor was also briefed about block development elections which will be held on October 24. 

“The delegations of parties whose leaders are in jail are being allowed to meet party presidents once, so that they can take a decision on elections and authorise someone to approve candidates,” the statement said. 

The chief electoral officer for the polls has been appointed along with 163 observers. According to an order issued by the CEO, 79 observers were appointed for Jammu division, 63 for Kashmir division and 16 for Ladakh division for the upcoming BDC elections. An official said some changes in the procurement price of apples will be announced shortly. Eight hundred and fifty tonnes of apple worth INR 3.25 crore have been procured so far.
