Development of far-flung areas our priority: NC
Jammu, May 30: National Conference Wednesday said the development of far-flung and inaccessible areas was the priority of the coalition government headed by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.
Speaking at a meeting of the party leaders here today, NC spokesperson and Member Legislative Assembly Sajad Ahmed Kihcloo said that NC and its leadership “is committed to the socio-economic upliftment of the people living in far-flung areas.”
“Various initiatives have been taken in this regard,” he said.
Appreciating new initiatives taken by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to ascertain the problems and difficulties faced by such areas, Kichloo said “the present dispensation is setting an example of people friendly initiatives, which have already started bearing fruit on the ground.”
The Right to Information Act, he said, is presently a weapon in the hand of common masses to ensure accountability in the government functioning. “The initiatives have started bearing fruits as there is a visible change on the ground,” he said.
