CM Mehbooba Mufti listens keenly to a local at the redressal camp in Pulwama on Sunday


    In a major initiative, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti announced that the government will invest in the development of Pulwama — the South Kashmir district synonymous with terrorism and encounters.

    Mufti on Sunday embarked on 'Mission Pulwama' to send across a message of peace and goodwill and spent the whole day in the restive Pulwama area conducting an open public grievance redressal camp.

    During the camp, Mufti heard people in a face-to-face interaction and in many cases issued on the spot directions for the immediate settlement of their problems, an official spokesman said.

    Militancy notwithstanding, massive roads and bridge networks, mega hospitals, cream of the crop schools, state of art fruit markets, jumbo irrigation and potable water projects are lined up to give a fillip to the development of this militancy-hit district of south Kashmir.

    "The thrust of the existing and new developmental initiatives sketched out for the district includes augmentation of connectivity, administrative infrastructure, healthcare facilities, educational infrastructure, power, irrigation and horticulture.

    Around 30 road and bridge projects costing Rs 190 crore are under execution in the district," said Mufti. She interacted with more than 100 deputation at the camp. Many deputation from Burhan Wani's hometown of Tral also met the CM and thanked her for giving a fillip to the developmental activities.

    "Pulwama has suffered a lot economically and educationally due to disturbances and the time has come to rebuild the area with focused attention. Peace and stability are important to ensure development at the grassroots level," she said, adding that, "We shall have to develop adequate capacity at the administrative level to expedite execution of developmental works."
