Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday underscored the need for social integration and proper rehabilitation of orphans and the destitute.

Interacting with the inmates of a children’s and destitute home at RS Pura, she said that though the government is doing what it is supposed to do for the welfare of orphans and destitute “it is the obligation of every citizen to play his role in proper rehabilitation and social integration of these victims of fate.”

Mehbooba appealed to all sections of people to “devote part of their mental, material or intellectual resources in bringing a large section of such socially fragmented people into the mainstream of society.”

During her visit, the Chief Minister sat with the inmates of the children’s home and interacted with them, an official spokesman said.

“The children shared their interests like poetry, singing and painting with the Chief Minister which she liked,” the spokesman said.

Mehbooba extended Diwali greetings to the children and wished them happy and prosperous times ahead. (GKNN)
