Jammu, February 05:
J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha will be delivering a key note address at the Harvard US-India initiative (HUII) annual Conference on Saturday.
This is one of the most prestigious annual event at Harvard in which the speakers focus on the pressing problems and issues facing the youth and spotlight on the way forward.
Manoj Sinha who symbolizes several profiles in one – most watched politician, orator and development- oriented personality, has been holding the office of the LG of Jammu and Kashmir, perhaps the most important position among all states and union territories in the country.
Since his assumption of the office of LG, he has changed the description of Jammu and Kashmir, introduced democratic temperament and given an extraordinary push for the development. This has been proven by the successful holding of the District Development Council polls that were held for the first time in J&K since Independence.
Given the change of guard in the White House, Manoj Sinha is expected to focus on the encouragement of the democracy across the world and the joint role of the US and India in this global venture. The expectations pinned on Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration might also find an echo in the LG’s keynote address.
As far as Jammu and Kashmir is concerned, he has a number of issues to spotlight, particularly involving the youth in the productive activities, especially after the announcement of the industrial policy that aims to provide jobs to 450,000 across J&K.
Manoj Sinha knows that the real problem in Kashmir is due to the terrorism promotion activities by Pakistan, a fact that the US administration has started realizing following Pakistan Supreme Court’s order to set free the killers of American journalist Daniel Pearl. The journalist was beheaded in Karachi, Pakistan, in October 2002 by terrorist Omar Saeed Sheikh, who was among the three terrorists who were set free in exchange of Indian Airliner IC 814 in December 199.
Pakistan has been sending terrorists into J&K to keep the pot boiling.
