Several ads for Ju0026K, Ladakh in the coming months: Mukesh Ambani

MUMBAI: Mukesh Ambani , president and CEO of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), said Monday that his company would make several announcements for Jammu and Kashmir (Ju0026K) and Ladakh region in the near future.

"Responding to the Prime Minister's appeal, we stand committed to support people of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh in all their developmental needs. Hence, we will create a special task force and you will see several announcements for Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh region in our developmental initiatives in the coming months," he said at the 42nd annual general meeting (AGM).

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his address to the nation on August 8, urged the companies to invest in the Jammu u0026 Kashmir and Ladakh region to increase employment opportunities for local people there.

The Parliament had revoked Article 370 that gave special status to the Jammu and Kashmir and also passed Jammu and Kashmir (Reorganization) Act 2019, reorganising the state as two Union Territories-- Jammu and Kashmir with assembly and Ladakh without it.

Ambani also took the opportunity to report that the RIL assumed responsibility for the families of CRPF personnel killed in the Pulwama terrorist attack in February this year.

As a sign of respect to the Pulwama martyrs, we have assumed full responsibility for the education of their children and the support of their families, he said.
