HYDERABAD: Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy on Saturday assured that Section 144 will be lifted soon in Jammu and Kashmir where it was in place after the abrogation of Article 370. “There was peace in Jammu and Kashmir post the abrogation of Article 370 and 35A. Section 144 will be lifted within a week to ten days and that there will be normalcy in the Valley soon. For the past 70 years, Indians were like aliens in their own country and now the abrogation of Article 370 has led to an extension of the Indian Constitution in totality to Jammu and Kashmir. At many places, Section 144 has been relaxed in Jammu and Kashmir,” Reddy said at National Seminar on Cyber Security at Institute of Engineers here. “Pakistan was trying to mislead people by giving false reports. Similarly, some political parties in the country also misled people for their own vested interests,” he said.

There are no signs of havoc in Jammu and Kashmir. We are just taking precautions, if provoked then things will be settled as soon as possible. After the abrogation of Article 370, we can see that people are much happier than before.” The minister said that Jammu and Kashmir will have developed in the industrial sector and the culture of the state will be recognized. Parliament recently withdrew special status to the Jammu and Kashmir and also passed Jammu and Kashmir (Reorganization) Act 2019, reorganizing the state in two Union Territories–Jammu and Kashmir with Assembly and Ladakh without it.
Symbi, the roommate matching service, has been acquired by Roomi, the dedicated marketplace for shared housing. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. “By joining forces with Roomi, our users can now tap into the broader Roomi ecosystem to find their perfect roommate match,” said Symbi cofounders Simone Kalmakis and Peter Kalmakis. “We have gotten to know Ajay and his team over the past few years, and are confident that the Symbi community is in good hands.” It does not appear that the Symbi team will be joining Roomi as this appears to be an asset sale.Founded by Simone Kalmakis and Peter Kalmakis in 2014, Symbi has not raised any reported institutional financing. This marks the third recent acquisition for Roomi, which previously acquired NYC-based The Room Ring last year. “Acquiring Symbi enables Roomi to continue building a better product so millions can find a safer way to search for room rentals and compatible roommates,” said Ajay Yadav, CEO & Founder of Roomi.PREVIOUS POSTNEXT POST Roommate Matching Startup Symbi Acquired by RoomiMarch 1, 2018 by Reza Chowdhury 233SHARESFacebookTwitterLinkedin Filed Under: #NYCTech, AlleyTalk, Exits Tagged With: Ajay Yadav, Peter Kalmakis, Roomi, Simone Kalmakis, Symbi, The Room Ring
