Srinagar, Sep 7: On the occasion of Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah’s death anniversary Governor N.N. Vohra recalled his notable contribution to the State.
In a message, the Governor recalled the period during which Sheikh Sahib had worked with eminent national leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and had strived for strengthening the cherished values of secularism and democracy. Governor recalled the high priority which he had devoted to the establishment of health and education facilities and the crucial Land Reforms pioneered by Sheikh Abdullah which had, in subsequent years, led to equitable development of the State.
Governor observed that best tribute which could be paid to Sheikh Sahib would be for the people to work with missionary zeal for reviving J&K’s deep rooted secular traditions and the bonds of communal harmony, brotherhood and amity, which would contribute towards bringing peace, progress and prosperity in the State.
