Srinagar: The government is considering to appoint Shah Faesal as the advisor to the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, Nav Bharat Times reported Tuesday.
Quoting sources, the report says that if Faesal returns to bureaucracy, he will still be given a post in Raj Bhavan. The report says that Faesal’s resignation from politics is part of forming an advisory group in J&K.
The report further says that the Centre and the J&K government is working on formation of an advisory council to start political process in the Union territory.
Besides Faesal, the report says names of J&K ex-Deputy CM Nirmal Singh, former speaker J&K legislative assembly, Kavinder Gupta, former Ministers in PDP government Haseeb Drabu and Altaf Bukhari as advisory council members is also making rounds.
The report further says that Sinha’s appointment as LG was not a mere coincidence. It says Centre is writing a script of another experiment in J&K and as such are exploring the option of creating advisory council.
