NAGROTA, Nov 23: Reposing his faith in the better judgment of people, National Conference candidate for Nagrota and Provincial President Devender Singh Rana on Sunday said they have always inspired and encouraged him to pursue the agenda of development for the area as a mission.
“In democracy, people are not only the real fountain of power but they are also the stake holders in development and governance”,   Mr Rana said while addressing public gatherings at Dansal, Pali (Badsoo), Kanyala and Bhatyari in Nagrota constituency.

These have made all the difference in the area which remained ignored for years. He promised to carry forward this mission to the logical conclusion by converting Nagrota into a model constituency. “We have envisioned a dream of making Nagrota a vibrant and scintillating satellite township and we are committed to realise this vision of Nava Jammu”, he said, adding that soon after elections this mission will be pursued with a sense of commitment.
Mr Rana exhorted the people to critically analyse the development taken place in the past few years of his tenure as Member Legislative Council and earlier.
