अगर फुरसत मिले तो पानी की तहरीरों को पढ़ लेना हर एक दरिया हज़ारों साल का अफसाना लिखता है Ganderbal is the land of brave sons of Mother India and revolutionary freedom fighters, the Lieutenant Governor Shri Manoj Sinha said while inaugurating key infrastructure projects there. He also bowed down to the virtuous soul of freedom fighter Late Sheikh Abdul Jaffar. The projects launched in Ganderbal are our efforts to make progress, LG said. Road upgradation work, construction of new roads, Wayil bridge among others are going to bring big changes in the lives of 4 lakh residents and will bring happiness. The successful G20 meeting is indicating the rise of new Jammu and Kashmir to India as well as to the entire world, LG said. Fifty seven delegates from 27 countries sat for a three-day tourism working group meeting in Srinagar creating a new enthusiasm, a new self-respect in the whole community. J&K’s 1 crore 30 lakh residents’ new dreams are now hopeful of being fulfilled. The Wayil bridge will benefit around 21, 000 people bringing a pleasant change in their life, LG said. In the last three years, a lot of progress has been made in meeting employment needs and necessary requirements for the people of Ganderbal. The happiness of every brother and sister of Ganderbal is the biggest priority for the administration, LG said. The projects which were delayed also have been completed. In the last financial year under the aspirational plan development programme, 590 families were trained for self employment schemes of mushroom and bee keeping. To fulfil the dream of our PM Narendra Modi to give permanent dwellings to all, around 1607 people have been identified who do not have homes. Forty percent of homes have been constructed so far. The rest will be constructed in this financial year, LG said. In the programmes, Back to Village and My Town My Pride, 3,500 Ganderbal youth were disbursed Rs 387 crore for self employment. The LG said that with the blessings of Mata Kheer Bhawani, the administration is preparing for a big Mela. I believe I have your support as in the past and in the future too, LG said. The Lieutenant Governor recalled how during the Amarnath 2022 yatra when people were hurt by natural calamity, Ganderbal people were the first to rush for help. He requested the people to follow their tradition so that this year, the Amarnath yatris should see such an environment that Ganderbal’s name will get famous in the whole country. Dr Arun Kumar Mehta, Chief Secretary J&k said that the pace of work has progressed ten times more under the powerful leadership of the Lieutenant Governor. At the same expenses ten times more work is being completed, he said. That means in the resources and facilities made available to us, we can still do a lot better. It is time for a good change for the district, said the Chief Secretary.
