Act Two: Get proactive
FOLLOWING the successful conduct of the G-20 Tourism Working Group meeting in Srinagar last month, the Jammu and Kashmir administration is all set to hold a three-day National Conference On Legal Services from June 29 to July 1 at the SKICC, Srinagar in which more than 200 hundred judges of Supreme Court and High Courts of various states are likely to participate.
Thus, Srinagar is all set to host the first-of-its-kind legal services conference. The conference will be attended by Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of India D Y Chandrachud; Union Minister of State for Law and Justice Arjun Ram Meghwal and 200 hundred judges from across the country.
Srinagar is fast emerging as a high-end event management city. A series of national and international events are scheduled to be held in Srinagar in the coming months. This is a positive development which could eventually benefit in attracting and promoting Kashmir as a hub of constructive activities. That said, the LG administration has to be more proactive with regard to the follow-up actions on discussions held earlier during the G-20 Working Group meeting. The administration had raised the bar and people have started expected much post the meeting. Event management alone cannot help if the desired goals are out of sight. It, of course, helps the state in image –building; but the UT administration needs to fix achievable targets which could revolutionise the socio-economic ladder of Jammu and Kashmir. As goes the saying, actions speak louder than words. So, let actions speak. People have pinned their hopes on this administration and they have expectations from the national and international events being organised in Srinagar.
May we move proactively, purposefully and progressively.
