Kishtwar, Nov 9: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Friday asserted that peace was imperative for sustained development and economic prosperity of J&K. He also said that “some elements are bent upon creating a wedge between various sections of the society and triggering hatred to disturb tranquility.”
Addressing the annual day function of Faredia Educational Institute here, Omar said: “It has been observed that some elements are time and again trying to disturb amity and brotherhood. People must foil their nefarious designs and uphold the secular characteristic and strengthen the pluralistic fabric in the State.”
The Chief Minister said that peace was more required for imparting education and keeping schools and colleges functional.
He said a comprehensive and equitable development process is being carried forward by his government across the state and that inclusive development of backward pockets is receiving added attention.
Omar said the districts of Kishtwar, Doda, Reasi, Ramban and entire Chenab Valley has been the focus of his government for their overall development and the prized projects in power, road communication and other sectors have been launched to address development requirements of these areas.
Omar said that four power projects are being launched in the region to generate 3000 MWs of power and open new vistas of economic development. He said numerous job opportunities are being created for the youth of the backward and remote areas.
He said the Chenab Valley Power Projects Limited has started work on Pakuldul, Kiru and Kawar Hydro Electric Projects while Bursur-II is also being taken up by the agency for execution.
The Chief Minister said his government is vigorously pursuing at the Union Government level the sanctioning of tunnels in Kishtwar and other such areas to enhance accessibility and link up the remote areas with main highways. “We are hopeful that Vialo-Singpora tunnel to connect Kishtwar with Kashmir Valley will also be sanctioned soon,” he said.
