Patna: Former Bihar Governor and now the Governor of Jammu & Kashmir Satya Pal Malik was given a warm send-off at the Governor's mansion in Patna on Sunday by his successor Lalji Tandon who praised for his initiatives in the field of education and agriculture during his short tenure in Bihar.

Tandon also wished good luck to Malik for his appointment as the Governor of Jammu & Kashmir saying it was an immensely tough position given the history of the state and wished him good luck in bringing communal peace and harmony in the state.

The outgoing Governor, in his address, thanked the Nitish government and the people of Bihar for their continued support, love and respect,

"I will never forget my experience in Bihar. During my short tenure, I tried to introduce changes in the way higher education works in the state and introduced agricultural policies that would affect farmers positively. Establishing academic and examination calendars, holding students' union election, biometric attendance system in colleges and revoking recognition of colleges without girls' common room and wash-rooms were some of the steps taken by me that, I hope, will go a long way in improving education in Bihar," Malik said adding he hoped the development would continue under the able leadership of incoming governor Lalji Tandon.

Governor's Chief Secretary Vivek Kumar Singh, Upper Secretary Vijay Kumar, and Public Relations Officer Sunil Kumar Pathak also spoke on the occasion.
