Soz Calls On PM


KL Report


State Congress President Prof Saifuddin Soz Wednesday met Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh in New Delhi.

“Many subjects of mutual interest came up for discussion. The socio-political situation in J&K was discussed. Among the matters, the Prime Ministers’ proposed visit to Kashmir on June 25 and 26 was also discussed,” a statement from Congress reads.

“The Prime Minister also agreed to release a commemorative stamp on Shair-i- Kashmir late Gulam Ahmad Mehjoor. The proposal for this commemorative stamp was initially mooted by the Mehjoor Foundation.  Later, when I raised this issue in the Rajya Sabha as a special mention on November 21, 2011, the government of India responded positively and agreed to release a Commemorative Stamp on Mehjoor.

It is a very happy occasion that the people of J&K will have an auspicious occasion to remember Shair Kashmir Gulam Ahmad Mehjoor, who was accepted very widely as harbinger of  message of harmony and togetherness of mankind. I also met Kapil Sibbal Minister of Communication in this connection, he will also be present on this occasion,” it added.
