He further observed that all such recommendations will be incorporated in the policy making by the UT administration and implemented on ground for the welfare of the common man of Jammu Kashmir.

The Lt Governor said that India thrives in its diversity. Moral and social values, ancient tradition and cultural legacy is the real wealth of our society. We have overtaken the UK to become the world's fifth-largest economy which shows our socio-economic development derives strength from these values, he added.

Today, the Indian Diaspora is considered the largest and the most prosperous group in the world and people of Indian origin including J&K have become the significant driver of global growth, the Lt Governor added.Underscoring that mobility, access to grow, greater control is the key for socio-economic growth, the Lt Governor observed that a large population of J&K was deprived of it for a long time. The transformation post 2019 has empowered every section of society with access to all benefits provided by the constitution, he added.

J&K UT’s socio-economic & cultural sector is witnessing transformation. We aim for higher economic growth, fast infrastructure development while preserving & promoting our cultural ethos, the Lt Governor noted.The Lt Governor observed that deliberate attempts were made to keep Jammu Kashmir, the land of spirituality and wisdom, away from progress & prosperity due to Article 370 and 35-A. 

The lack of access to benefits brought stagnation to growth. “Discrimination was a norm and social welfare was an exception. However, under the guidance of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, all the progressive laws were implemented and reforms were introduced to bring J&K at par with other developed states,” Lt Governor said.

Speaking on the social transformation taking place in different sectors in Jammu and Kashmir in the past three years, the Lt Governor said that accelerated pace of development, participative, transparent and accountable governance system, massive investment flow, easy accessibility of public service, empowerment of women and deprived section of the society is being ensured to end Social-inequality.

The unprecedented change taking place in Jammu and Kashmir is also helping to promote the cultural activities. A cinema hall is opening this month after three decades. The Culture of organizing literary festivals, art camps have picked up across the UT. Local Handicrafts and handlooms sectors have been revived and a new dawn has been witnessed by the tourism sector, he added.
