LG Manoj Sinha is very keen to get the feedback from the public representatives in the three tiers Panchayati Raj system of Jammu and Kashmir and he recently met these representatives of Kashmir division to understand the ground situation.
During the interaction he appealed to these public representatives to give feedback to the government about the pace of development on the ground level.
He said that an integrated approach to institutionalize the active participation of PRIs in implementation of various schemes and projects will be a key driver of the UT’s overall development agenda. The three-tiers of the Panchayati Raj system is a bridge between policies and their implementation on the ground, and the administration is putting concerted efforts to strengthen the grass root level of the democratic setup.
Terming the Panchayati Raj system as the cornerstone of participatory governance in J&K, the Lt Governor observed that the Funds, Functions and Functionaries have been made available to the Public Representatives for grass-root development. For invoking a greater role of Jan Bhagidari in the development process, the PRIs will be further strengthened in the near future.
He called upon the DDCs to work in collaboration with the administration at all levels, and also assured full cooperation and support of the government towards meeting the aspirations of people and their elected representatives.
