Centre orders for destroyed temples in Jammu and Kashmir

Jammu: Union minister of state for home G Kishan Reddy said here on Monday that the central government had ordered surveys to be conducted of 50,000 temples that had been closed, 90% of which were destroyed. He said similar surveys were also being conducted of schools that had been closed.

Reddy was addressing the media, when he spoke about some of the important decisions taken by the central government after the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution.

Reddy said the administrations of the two Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh would come into being on October 31, which also happened to be the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. “Two Lieutenant Governors will be appointed on that day,” he said.
