Talking to reporters on the sidelines of the function, the LG said that today is the historic day for J&K as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) based EMAAR Group has decided to invest Rs 250 Crore to set up a mega-mall on the 10 lakh square feet area at Sempora, Srinagar.

Earlier, addressing the gathering, the Jammu-Kashmir LG said that the investment made by the Emaar group is just the beginning. He urged the EMAAR group to ensure the completion of the mall within the shortest possible time.

The LG said that some people have a negative mindset in J&K and continue to criticize the government policies as they can’t digest the huge development taking place in the UT.

He said, “J&K has witnessed a huge sea change post August 5, 2019. The government land was kept under illegal possession by some people that was retrieved. The land retrieved will be used for setting up industries, playgrounds for youth and graveyards for the people.”

The LG said that J&K was getting the cheapest power in the country. Sinha said, “J&K is the first place after Telangana to have the first Women Entrepreneur Institute (WEI).”
