Srinagar, May 27: The state government is spending Rs 1.8 crore on the ongoing facelift of Bul Bul Shah(RA) shrine in Shahr-e-Khaas, an official handout Thursday said.
The Minister for Rural Development, Law and Parliamentary Affairs, Ali Muammad Sagar during his Shahr-e-Khaas tour today inspected the ongoing work on the shrine at Bul Bul Lanker in the old City.
The work to facelift the shrine of Syed Abdul Rehman popularly known as Bul Bul Shah, who is credited with spreading Islam in the Valley during early 13th century AD, was started last year.
While referring to the historical role of Bul Bul Shah, the Sagar said that his “teachings should serve as the source of inspiration for all of us as by treading the path of righteousness we can understand that true meaning of life and also contribute our bit in serving the human cause and humanity in general.”
“Interacting with the people of the localities of Ali Kadal, Bul Bul Lanker, Nawakadal, Baudgeer, Sagar said that a comprehensive project for widening of the lanes, bylanes and roads of the area is underway and would be implemented very soon,” the handout said.
“Sagar while responding to the demands of the locals of the area said that Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has already formulated a comprehensive policy for rehabilitation of the Artisan class, who have faced lot of problems. The step would be beneficial to the locals of the area who are mostly artisans dealing in Kashmir Handicrafts.”
The Minister also visited the residence of Abdul Razak Kinu, a socio- political worker who had passed away recently and paid condolences to the family.
