Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Sunday hailed Sopore girl Mufferah Majeed for her efforts to build a solar boat, which shows her dedication to combat climate change and promote green development.

Sinha, as per KNO, while praising Mufferah in his monthly programme ‘Awaam Ki Awaaz’ said these individual small steps will make big changes in the journey towards sustainable development.

He directed the higher education department as well as the district administration Baramulla to help her in realising her dream.
