Sharma in Pulwama amid tight security

Pulwama: Government of India’s (GoI) special representative on Jammu and Kashmir, Dineshwar Sharma, reached Pulwama district on Sunday on his second leg of visit to the restive state.

Sharma was appointed by GoI in October to “know the legitimate aspirations of people of J&K”.

A former chief of India’s top spy body, IB, Sharma reached Jammu on Friday where he met several delegations for two days before flying to Srinagar from where he drove to Pulwama this morning.

Reports said that several delegations met Sharma in Pulwama who raised issues of “governance and lack of better roads and genuine electricity supply”.

The district civil and police administration has put in place multi-level security arrangements for Sharma’s visit.

He is scheduled to meet delegations in Anantnag on Monday.

Following his first visit to J&K, GoI directed J&K for review of at least “4500 first-time stone pelters” and the process has been set in motion.
