Lieutenant Governor has recently promised that he will soon set right the system for the industrial growth in Jammu and Kashmir, the new industrial policy would be rolled out soon so that a new financial intervention is taken up by the government.
Recently Manoj Sinha said, “Rs 25,000 crore industrial investment is in the offing and J&K is going to secure this huge investment after the announcement of a historic industrial policy soon,” .
He said that the objective of the government is maximum utilization of industries, manufacturing, services sector, village industries, handicraft, tourism and technology to create more jobs in the rural areas of J&K, as the government believes that there is a vast yet untapped talent pool in our villages waiting for an opportunity.
He said that with the B2V initiative of the government, the rural-urban divide would be minimized and cautioned that he has not come to Jammu and Kashmir to make new promises, but for optimum implementation and utilization of funds.
He has asked the people of Jammu and Kashmir to come forward and meet the government and discuss their priority projects and begin a new era of rapid development.
It is to be seen whether LG Sinha would be able to fulfill his promises with the public as it is the same administration which is not accountable and the same system that needs to be set right in absence of any change on the ground. It seems difficult that there would be any visible change in the rural development scenario.
