Children in Kashmir have no source of entertainment: Guv Malik
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik on Friday said that Kashmir was an issue for people aged between 13 and 23, said a media report.
“Kashmir is an issue for people aged between 13-23 years, children have nothing to do after 6 pm in Srinagar, no cinemas, no cafes, no place to go out,” he was quoted by news agency ANI as having said.
“I have just laid foundation stone for a cinema hall (in Jammu),” he added.
He said that the state is ready for the Assembly as well as Parliamentary polls and they are only waiting for the Election commission’s decision.
