New era of hope and optimism has just began in J&K with seasoned politician Manoj Sinha taking over the reins of newly carved out UT from erstwhile State of J&K. Going vocal over the situation in J&K, he made it clear that he means business and will take course of dialogue and development to end uncertainty and terrorism, which are the main obstacles hindering the pace of progress and peace in the region. The 61-year-old Sinha was administered the oath of office by Jammu and Kashmir High Court Chief Justice Gita Mittal here in the Raj Bhawan. The way the people of J&K especially the Valley reacted to the situation arising out of abrogation of Article 370 showing no concern with those held under preventive detention by the administration to avoid disturbance in Valley gave a vital clue to those sitting at helm that the path to winning hearts of people is not through appeasement of local leadership rather it can be achieved by giving conducive atmosphere and vistas of opportunities to aboriginals to flourish and prosper. Immediately after taking the charge of UT, Sinha pitched for peace and stability and said the powers of the Constitution will be used for the betterment of the people and the development of Jammu and Kashmir. This kind of attitude of the incumbent LG is something which J&K is longing for since last many decades. Although, the timing of new LG taking over the reins of UT is crucial as there are several unpleasant incidents occurring in J&K including killing of Sarpanch but the way in which the experienced political stalwart commenced his inning here it seems that things will change for good and soon J&K will come out of morass and hopelessness prevailing here for quite a long time. What he said on his first day in J&K holds the key as dialogue only can establish confidence among the people. This only can end the uncertainty in J&K, which in turn will help to restore peace and eliminate terrorism. It is therefore anticipated that with the change of guard in J&K soon people will see the sea change and ‘Achhe Din’ with respect to peace, progress and prosperity, which everybody in UT is longing for will become a reality.
