GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Jan 20: Minister for Planning and Development Labour and Employment Ajay Kumar Sadhotra on Sunday sought the support of people for what he termed as “reshaping developmental landscape of JK.”
Addressing a gathering at Jaswan, in Marh Block Sadhotra said, “Focus of developmental strategy is to enhance the standards of living of the people and to generate socio-economic opportunities for them.”
Sadhotra expressed gratitude to the people for supporting the programmes and policies of coalition government which were aimed at the upliftment of the people as a whole across the State. He, however, cautioned the people to remain vigilant against the divisive and misleading tactics of vested interests who were hell bent to derail the process of development and progress undertaken under the dynamic leadership of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.
Referring to the problems projected by the people, the Minister said all possible measures would be taken to redress these in a phased manner. He said he was aware of the problems like unemployment and upgrading infrastructural facilities in the area and assured that all these issues would be taken care of.
He asked the people of the area in general and the elected representative of Panchayats in particular to be part of the developmental effort set in motion by the coalition government.
“People were major stake-holders in the developmental plank”, he said while soliciting their cooperation in this effort.
Earlier rousing reception was given to him at Jaswan, in Marh Block on his maiden visit to his area after induction in the Cabinet. He was profusely greeted by the people amidst euphoric slogans, hailing the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.
