JAMMU, Mar 8: Lauding generous societal support in community development, Provincial President Devender Singh Rana today said philanthropic activities do not only help in creating various services but also generate the spirit of camaraderie among people.
“The spirit of sacrifice is laudable, especially during present times when hate and greed are taking centre-stage in the society”, Rana said while inaugurating a community hall in Sidhra, the upcoming residential enclave in Nagrota Assembly Constituency.
He expressed his gratitude to Dhan Devi for donating a prime-plot for construction of the community hall and said her philanthropic act will prove a harbinger of togetherness and promote inclusiveness. The facility will go a long way in meeting the banquet and other needs of the area.
Rana also hoped that the community centre would provide residents of Sidhra and its immediate periphery the opportunity to work together and organise social and cultural activities.
The MLA Nagrota expressed his happiness over the constituency as a whole emerging as modern residential enclave, sports and economic hub besides academic landmark, close to the winter capital.
“Given the grandeur of the area, strategically located on the National Highway and Gateway to Kashmir besides Mata Vaishno Devi, infrastructural development assumes immense significance”, he said, adding that he will not leave any stone unturned in its futuristic development.
He said the constituency has all the ingredients to grow as a vibrant urban centre, despite being rural in character. “The blend of rural and urban makes Nagrota a vibrant destination for sports, economic and tourism activities”, he said, adding that overall infrastructural development will open up new vistas of opportunities for the youth to launch their income generating units. “Obliviously, these will give fillip to Nagrota economy”, he added.
He reiterated his vision about Nagrota as a model constituency and said this call for a holistic approach and special dispensation. He hoped that political myopism will not come in the way of building a strong edifice for promoting various activities.
He assured the people that he will make every effort in satiating their aspirations and hoped continued cooperation and feedback on various activities going across the constituency.
