J-K Assembly Speaker interacts with staff

J-K Assembly Speaker interacts with staff

Jammu [Jammu and Kashmir]: With the assembly secretariat reopening in Jammu, Assembly Speaker Nirmal Singh took stock of the facilities and interacted with staff members.

“Assembly secretariat re-opens in Jammu. Speaker Legislative Assembly inspects various sections of Assembly Secretariat; take stock of facilities. Interacts with staff members, enquires about working,” Department of Information and Public Relations of Jammu and Kashmir government said in a tweet on Tuesday.

The state civil secretariat reopened in Jammu on Monday as part of long-held practice.

It was the first time that the civil secretariat re-opened in Jammu after bifurcation of state into union territories – Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh – on October 31.

The practice under which the secretariat moves to Jammu after functioning for six months in Srinagar is known as `Darbar Move’.

Girish Chandra Murmu had taken oath on October 31 as the first Lieutenant-Governor of the Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

The government had in August repealed Article 370, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir. A bill to bifurcate the state into two union territories — Jammu and Kashmir with the legislative assembly, and Ladakh without legislative assembly- was also passed by parliament.
