Former Finance Minister and former MP of Jammu and Kashmir, Late. On Saturday, a tribute program was organized by Girdhari Lal Dogra Memorial Trust on the 34th death anniversary of Girdhari Lal Dogra. In this program organized at Girdari Lal Dogra Chowk in front of Gulshan Ground, many dignitaries, including Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, paid tribute to him by offering flowers and garlands on his picture.

Born on July 17, 1915, in the house of farmer Bhim Mal in Bhaiya village of Hiranagar tehsil of Kathua district, Girdhari Lal Dogra became the first student to pass class X in his village. Along with doing LLB from Punjab University, Lahore, he also actively participated in the country’s freedom movement. Girdari Lal Dogra is one of the few leaders in the politics of Jammu and Kashmir who has received respect from every political party, and the public’s love towards him can be gauged from the fact that he never lost an election in his political life.

Remembering him on this occasion, the trust members said that Mr Girdhari Lal Dogra may not be with us today. Yet, people remember him because of the remarkable contribution he made in his long political tenure. He said that while being the Finance Minister and Member of Parliament in the Government of Jammu and Kashmir, Mr Dogra has done a lot for the development of Jammu and Kashmir. He loved the simplicity and was a messiah of the poor. He used to take people from all the communities along. He had a different identity not only in Jammu and Kashmir but also in the politics of the Center. Such leaders are rarely found in politics. He said that all should adopt the simple lifestyle of Dogra. Also, one should always be ready to serve the people.
