J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik urges Shah Faesal to reconsider decision to join politics

Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Saturday urged Shah Faesal, who resigned from service as an IAS officer recently, to reconsider his decision to join politics.

“In case he would continue his services as an IAS officer, he could serve the people of society in a better way. As far as his feelings about Kashmiris are concerned he could be posted in the region for extending his fullest support in ameliorating the poverty and creating job opportunities for the youth of the Valley so that people would be prosperous and would lead a better life,” said Mr. Malik in a statement on Saturday evening.

He described Mr. Faesal as an efficient and dedicated officer, who rendered his services with great zeal and enthusiasm for the welfare of the State and its people, particularly those belonging to weaker sections of society.

“Faesal could deliver better as an officer rather than as a politician. It is not necessary for me to suggest Faesal what he has to do in future even though best wishes were always with him. I would love to meet him if he comes to me for redressal of problems of the youth,” the Governor added.

Mr. Faesal, who topped the IAS examination in 2010, resigned from services earlier this week and decided to join politics.
