We want to kill terrorism, not terrorists: Guv Malik
Leh: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Thursday reiterated that the efforts of his government are meant to kill terrorism instead of terrorists.

“We want to kill terrorism and not terrorists,” Malik said while addressing the gathering. He added that his team is making efforts to build trust among youth and generating a positive platform for dialogue with the younger generation through various levels of interactions.
He asserted that youth of Kashmir have great potential to excel in sports like cricket and football and his government is coming up with international stadiums in the valley to promote their talent.
He stressed on ensuring opportunities for the creative engagement of youth and enabling them to explore their potential and excel in different fields. He said that the priority of Governor’s Administration is on outreach and interaction with people at ground level and hearing their grievances.
He added that their efforts are on to create an atmosphere for dialogue to address the issue of Kashmir.
Governor appreciated Sonam Wangchuk for his commitment and conviction in taking up challenges and lauded his endeavour in keeping youth connected to their roots with a sense of honour in their rich culture, traditional knowledge and moral values.
