JAMMU and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Sunday inaugurated a multipurpose cinema hall each in the twin south Kashmir districts of Pulwama and Shopian, almost three decades after theatre owners downed their shutters in the Valley primarily due to militancy.
Sinha described the occasion as “historic”. “A historic day for J&K UT! Inaugurated Multipurpose Cinema Halls at Pulwama and Shopian. It offers facilities ranging from a movie screening, infotainment and skilling of youth,” he tweeted. “We will build such multipurpose cinema halls in every district of Jammu and Kashmir soon. Today, I dedicate such cinema halls to the youth of Pulwama and Shopian,” he told reporters in Pulwama.
