S Se­na­tor Dariye, writ­ing ear­lier in a good­will mes­sage he re­leased when Gover­nor Jang turned 70 on the 13th of last month, had ad­vised Jang to for­give all who wronged him as his own birth­day present to his people for reach­ing the ripe age of 70 while still in of­fice as their gover­nor.
