Jammu: Three days after Shah Faesal announced his resignation, Governor Satya Pal Malik on Saturday said Faesal could serve people in a better way as a civil servant than a politician.
Malik in a handout described Faesal an efficient and dedicated officer who rendered his services with great zeal and enthusiasm for the welfare of the state and its people particularly belonging to weaker sections of the society.
“In case he would continue his services as an IAS officer he could serve the people of society in a better way,” he said and added, “As far as his feelings about Kashmiris are concerned, he could be posted in the region for extending his fullest support in ameliorating the poverty and creating job opportunities for the youth of the valley so that people would be prosperous and would lead a better life.”
Malik termed Faesal’s decision of joining politics as “personal” and said r could have done better even otherwise.
“He (Shah Faesal) has to consult the youth to know their aspirations and try to create a new platform for the redressal of problems and grievances of youth,” said the Governor.
Malik, however, said that it is “not necessary for him to suggest Faesal what he has to do in future even though his best wishes were always with him”.
“I would love to meet him if he comes to me for redressal of problems of youth”, he added.
