Gulam Nabi Azad, Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, visited the earthquake victims in Tangdhar area and distributed over one thousand blankets and woolens to them. He was accompanied by deputy chief minister Muzaffar Hussain Beig and Harcharan Singh Josh of the congress party who has been looking after the relief and rehabilitation work on behalf of the party.
Azad in his first press conference had announced that his government would give top priority to the work of relief and rehabilitation and ensure that no person is left without shelter during the oncoming winter in the state. Josh said that the relief material that was distributed on Friday by the chief minister was contributed by the congress party and had nothing to do with the state or the central government.
Azad will head to New Delhi soon to hold consultations with party high command about allocation of portfolios.
