He said: “When you came in after your inauguration on 29th May, 2015, we were absolutely sure that you would bring development to all nooks and crannies of the state. And Alhamdulillah, this is what you are doing. So we need more of this development.
“We are ready to support you and get you more closer to the people. We are appreciating the good work you are doing for your people. We believe in your leadership style as a people-oriented governor, who believes in developing his people in all aspects of life.”
