He has hailed Governor for sharing concern of the people of state about Art.35-A and Art.370 and his assurance “there is nothing to worry about, and these are issues raised due to political reasons.” He has also hailed the assertion of Governor that “he was in favour of wiping militancy and not militants” adding that such a kind of humanistic thinking would go a long way in bringing derailed socio-political situation of the state back on rails.
