In his interaction with the people, he said the challenges were numerous but his resolve remained equally steadfast. In this context, he referred to impetus given to various schemes due to persistent persuasion and said the people of the constituency were craving for development. He called for accelerating the post restoration of infrastructure that received huge dent due to rains. These include interior and main roads, water supply schemes, irrigational canals and power transmission. He said priority has to be given for ensuring regulated water and power supply.

He said he has been pursuing this agenda vigorously so that Nagrota comes up on the map of Jammu region as a vibrant hub of academia, sports, housing and economic activity. He said he has envisioned a dream for the constituency, which will be pursued with zeal and vigour.

Highlighting the crucial importance of Nagrota constituency, the MLA said the area remains in a vibrant mode round the clock due to 24x7 pilgrim influx besides tourist flow to the Valley as also Ladakh. He also referred to Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University and Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Narayana Super Specialty in its close vicinity, saying these are being thronged by people from across the country.

“Since the area unfolds vistas of opportunities for various sectors, the government should rise above political considerations and have a working plan formulated with respect to developing Nagrota as an institutional hub”, he said.
