Srinagar, August 14

Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik would hoist the national flag at the main function of the Independence Day at Sher-e-Kashmir stadium here on Thursday for which all arrangements had been made, Principal Secretary in J&K administration Rohit Kansal said.

In Jammu, the Independence Day celebrations would be led by an adviser to the governor while celebrations would be held at divisional, district and sub-district levels as well, he said in a statement on Wednesday.

“All arrangements for the smooth celebrations of the Independence Day have been made and the main function will be held at SK Stadium where Governor Satya Pal Malik will hoist the national flag,” Kansal said.

Full-dress rehearsals in this regard were held in all districts of the Kashmir Valley on Tuesday.

Kansal said the overall situation in Kashmir Valley had remained calm since the abrogation of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5 and the government had given further relaxation in “prohibitory orders” in many areas.

He said a few minor localised incidents had been dealt with at the local level.

Kansal assured that there was no shortage of essential supplies in the Kashmir Valley and hospitals and other civil facilities were functioning normally. PTI
