Striving for peace, progress: Omar
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 22: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Wednesday said that a well planned and integrated development policy has been put in place to give flip to the development and seek political stability and peaceful environment for achieving the goal of ‘a model Jammu and Kashmir’.
Interacting with people during his Awami Mulaqat program here, Omar said important sectors of road communication, health, education, power and water supply have been flagged as priority concerns of the government. He said tackling unemployment is also receiving focused attention.
“While steps are afoot to absorb educated youth in the government services, endeavours are on to encourage SME sector in the state and help enhance the employability of educated youth”, he said maintaining that next four years of his government would witness substantial change on the fronts of development and economic progress.
The Chief Minister said that involvement of grassroots public representatives in the economic activities and policy framing is crucial to achieve the targeted goals successfully. He said the establishment of Panchayat Raj in the state would be appropriate means to shift decision making practice from the secretariat and provincial levels to the grassroots so that public issues are settled at Panchayat levels.
As many as 70 deputations and over 2000 individuals met the Chief Minister during his Awami Mulaqat.
