Dheeraj Gupta, Principal Secretary, Housing and Urban Development Department (HUDD , District Administration Budgam said, we need to give reassurance to people that the government is with you. The Back to Village programme emboldens the Panchayati Raj institution, increases public outreach, creates passion among the people, and closes the delivery gaps by collaborating with people and identifying those problems. Earlier, there was dynasty rule and nobody bothered about the common people. Today, the Back to Village programme is concerned about the welfare of the common man. Problems like upgrading of middle schools and higher secondary schools are being taken up and other problems of creating more space are being met through the Back to Village programme.
