JAMMU, Sept 21: DDC Chairman Jammu Bharat Bhushan Bodhi today said that the ongoing outreach programme initiated by the Central Government whereby Union ministers are visiting J&K to have firsthand knowledge of people’s issues is helping out to bridge the gap between Government and the subjects of the Union Territory.
In a statement issued today, Bharat Bhushan said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi through this unique initiative has given opportunity to bring to the kind notice of main stakeholders of the Government their issues and demands and expect early redressal as their aspirations will directly reach the top hierarchy of the Government viz PMO and Ministry of Home Affairs.
“There is no doubt that the top hierarchy will consider the genuineness and the utility of the projections before giving the final nod”, he said, adding that the actions taken are likely to give momentum to development process in the UT.
The DDC Chairman said that DDC members are also playing a pivotal role in highlighting ground level issues and working as true representatives of the people. He particularly anticipated that forthcoming visit of Nitin Gadkari will be of great importance as far as accelerating the development projects in Jammu and Kashmir is concerned.
Talking specifically of Jammu, Bharat Bhushan said that district is getting benefits of Central Government schemes like Jal Jeevan Mission and power projects. He said that Government is working tirelessly to ensure the crisis of power and water dearth is resolved as early as possible. He said that under Jal Jeevan Mission, BJP is committed to provide tap water to every house hold before the end of 2022.
