Peace imperative for good governance, sustainable economy: Mir
Wanigam (Pattan), May 26: Urging people to give peace a chance, President of Democratic Party Nationalist (DPN) and Minister for Agriculture Ghulam Hassan Mir on Saturday said that good governance is key for boosting the economy of J&K.
The Minister while addressing a public gathering here in north Kashmir said, “Without peace good governance is impossible. People’s participation in developmental activities and other welfare programmes is very much essential for making J&K a centre of economic progress in central Asian region. “Our traditional tourism industry is wholly and solely dependent on peace where the livelihood of lakhs of people across the state is reliant on this blooming economic sector of the world”, he maintained.
Mir asserted that development is co- related with peace and added that the present coalition government has already prioritized the five basic needs Bijli, Sadak, Pani, Taleem and Sehat. Mir said that to achieve success in fulfilling these essential needs several ambitious projects have been launched in these sectors across the state for the benefit of Aam Aadmi.
Referring to the bay gone era of disturbance in valley, he said that many indispensable projects in different sectors that should have been completed years back are now being taken up under various centrally and state sector schemes to redeem the economic activity of J&K.
He said the people of the Valley have suffered economically, educationally and on developmental front primarily due to the unrest in this part of the world. “Time has come for all the stakeholders to sit together for reworking a constructive strategy to make the J&K a peaceful and progressing nation,” he said.
“With people’s cooperation particularly from youth to maintain peaceful atmosphere in the Valley during last one and half year, the developmental activities have got momentum resultantly the tourist influx into valley have increased manifold to provide livelihood to transporters, hoteliers, shikarawaalas, houseboat owners, artisans, shopkeepers, and many others”, the Minister said. He hoped the people would continue their support for making J&K an economically prosperous state.
