While the Jammu and Kashmir government has said that they have provided all the support and finances for the PMGSY roads in the villages, there are many such projects lingering due to the delay by the bureaucrats in clearing the problems on the ground.
In a recent interaction with DDC members of Kashmir division LG Manoj Sinha said that his administration has achieved a lot of pace in the PMGSY roads especially in rural areas.
He said that his administration has cleared a large number of cases and completed various works pending for several years. He further informed the DDC Chairpersons that work is also going on in full swing to provide pothole free roads and this year, the department aims to make 6000 km road length free of pot-holes. Soon the remaining villages left without proper road connectivity would be connected in the next two years are the goal of J&K administration.
Regarding the shortage of staff in many districts as he got the feedback from these public representatives Manoj Sinha said that rationalization would be done to strengthen the departments facing a shortage of officers.
He also spoke about various schemes and programs viz. Mission Youth, Mumkin, Parvaz, Hausla and other such initiatives under which employment opportunities are being provided to young boys and girls of the UT along with promoting entrepreneurship.
