“We want to assure all citizens that whoever is trying to mislead the young people through proxy war, shall be given a befitting reply. The neighbouring country, which does not care for its own people, has been making malicious attempts to instigate some of our youth,” Sinha said in his address.

Referring to the Centre’s decision to revoke the special status of J-K, Sinha had said in 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had marked the beginning of a new era for Jammu and Kashmir.
“Carrying forward the four resolutions of the 75th year of independence, namely, power of public participation, resolve of establishing a new Jammu and Kashmir, providing equal opportunities to all and technological development, we along with the youth of the UT can transform the entire Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.
The L-G paid tributes to the brave soldiers of Army, paramilitary forces and Jammu and Kashmir Police.
“I am proud that the Jammu and Kashmir police has received 257 gallantry awards, including Ashok Chakra, Kirti Chakra and Shaurya Chakra, on the eve of the Independence Day,” he said.
He announced that the administration has decided that various places and institutions will be christened in the memory of freedom fighters, brave soldiers and personalities from different fields who have made invaluable contribution in the progress of Jammu and Kashmir.
“This will inspire the coming generations to become their worthy successors. I am sure that the stories of those who have made sacrifices for this elixir of freedom will awaken a new and re-energised Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.
Sinha said it is our goal to make Jammu and Kashmir synonymous with success.
He added that the celebration of Independence Day 2021 is special for Jammu and Kashmir and the entire country because the celebration, resolve, energy and enthusiasm of today’s new generation will shape the formidable base for the centenary celebration of Independence in 2047.
