With an eye on the future J&K administration is trying to create future infrastructure in the towns and cities.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha inaugurated 32 development projects of Urban Local Bodies in Kashmir Division.
At the inaugural event, he reiterated the commitment of UT Administration to bridge the decades-long developmental gap and create improved and smart facilities for the citizens while encouraging healthy competition amongst the Urban Local Bodies.
Our aim is to develop a more equitable and self-reliant town, which preserves ancient culture and heritage, supports disadvantaged sections of society and attracts private sector investment with a focus on economy and ecology, the Lt Governor said.
In the coming future, Tier-II, Tier-III cities and small towns will also become important centers of economic development. We need to change the regressive mindset and facilitate the private investors to tap the potential of diverse sectors.
On the occasion, Heads and representatives of Urban Local Bodies expressed gratitude to the Lt Governor-led UT Administration for empowering the ULBs and addressing the development needs of the people.
Sh Akshay Labroo, Deputy Commissioner Budgam; Sh. Sujit Kumar, DIG CKR Srinagar; senior officers, HoDs and representatives of Urban Local Bodies were present.
