Omar’s vision will transform Chenab Valley:Rana
Kishtwar, Oct 22: Chief Minister’s Political Advisor Devender Singh Rana on Monday said the Omar Abdullah led government’s visionary, futuristic and comprehensive power generation initiatives would make the Chenab Valley an economic hub of the state.
Rana while addressing a meeting of party workers here said: “Unprecedented economic resurgence would happen in this part of the state in the next couple of years changing the scape of the entire sub-region thereby transforming the quality of life of the people of this area thanks to the vision of Omar Abdullah”.
He said Omar Abdullah led government and its journey from 2009 to 2012 has been a sojourn from turmoil to peace, from disharmony to harmony, a journey of economic resurgence, equitable growth and futuristic infrastructural development.
Rana said Omar Abdullah led coalition government has initiated various power projects which include 93 Mega Watts Ganderbal, 450 MW Baglihar Stage-II, 37.5 Mega Watts Parnai, 1856 MW Sawalakote, 240 MW Karthai, 250 MW Lower Parnai and 990 MW Karthai-II, 600 MW Kiru, 520 MW Kawar and 1000 MW Pakal Dul and 850 MW Rattle project alongwith other projects which are under various stages of their execution.
“The PDP leadership today is crying hoarse but during its three year tenure they did not initiate even a single power project which could have helped today to improve the power scenario in the state”, Rana said adding that the
Rs 3900 crore grant which was received by the PDP as power reform grant from 2002 to 2005 was swindled away for cheap political gimmicks rather than initiating power reforms to strengthen transmission and distribution system in the state.
Rana urged the party workers to strengthen the coalition because this coalition is based on ideological synergy and is committed to the welfare of the people of the state and is required for the development of Jammu and Kashmir.
Senior National Conference leader Sajjad Kitchloo while addressing the party workers thanked the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah for paying special attention for the development of this area and said that the people of the area are indebted to the Chief Minister for all the support we have received which has unleashed development across the district.
“I on behalf of people of Kishtwar express my thanks to our Chief Minister Omar Abdullah for conceding to our long pending demands”.
