Governor calls for eschewing violence

india Updated: Feb 20, 2010 19:52 IST

Jharkhand Governor, M O H Farook on Saturday said there was no scope for violence in democracy and the problem needed to be resolved across the table.

Addressing a press conference in Jamshedpur, Farook said he had made his stand clear soon after taking up the gubernatorial office in Jharkhand and so was the view of the Union Home Minister in this regard.

Farook, who was in the steel city to inaugurate the three-day international conference on "Diaspora space: Voices and Voyages" organised by Jamshedpur women's college here, said Jharkhand has plenty of scope for industrialisation and expressed hope that the mineral abdundant state would be back on the path of development.

"Jharkhand is a rich state but its people are poor," he said while calling for implementing the government schemes meant for poorer section of society.

A lot of development in Jharkhand has to take place, he said.

Farook, however, regretted that only 45 per cent of people get electricity in Jharkhand whereas other states were getting electricity with coal supplied by Jharkhand.

Similarly, development should also take place in other sectors including infrastructure, education etc, he added.
