To commemorate the birth anniversary of Maharaja Hari Singh Ji, September 23 of every year will be observed as a holiday in government offices and educational institutions across Jammu and Kashmir, but what about the private institutions will they observe Maharaja’s leave tomorrow?, the report said.

It is a humble appeal to the private sector of Jammu & kashmir to please announce leave tomorrow  on september 23  to celebrate the Maharaja’s birthday, the report said.

Maharaja Hari Singh was a great educationist, progressive thinker, social reformer, and a towering man of ideas and ideals and tomorrow’s public holiday will be a fitting tribute to his rich legacy.
