The Governor, however, observed that it is not up to him to suggest Faesal what he wants to do in future and that his best wishes are always with him. “I would love to meet him if he comes to me for redressal of problems of youth”, the Governor added in his statement.
The move by the Governor to introduce another law under his tenure — now for his own security — has been questioned by political leaders, who described it as 'ironic' and an attempt to create 'a great wall of China around himself'.
On November 22, the State Administrative Council(SAC) approved turning J&K Bank to a PSU. Two former Chief Ministers, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti, had described the move as a “disturbing” development while a former chairman of the bank called it “unfortunate”.
PDP’s Mehbooba Mufti described it as a “disturbing step to snatch every bit of autonomy that our institutions have”. Sajad Lone of People’s Conference said his party’s economic philosophy is decentralisation and total liberalisation.
