Jammu- Conceding to the demand of Rajputs, the LG administration Thursday decided to declare Maharaja Hari Singh’s birth anniversary a public holiday in Jammu and Kashmir.

A notification in this regard will be issued soon, an official spokesperson said.

He said that the announcement was made by Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha following his meeting with a delegation of prominent political leaders, members of the Yuva Rajput Sabha, civil society members, including head of J&K transport union, at the Raj Bhavan on Thursday.
