SRINAGAR: Governor N.N. Vohra, released G. A. Qureshis book Poverty in Jammu and Kashmir State at a function held at the Raj Bhavan today. The author briefed the Governor about certain salient issues covered in the book.
This volume is an endeavour by the author, who is a former Director General, Economics & Statistics, J&K, to present a comprehensive analysis of different aspects of the problem of poverty in J&K.
