Jammu, Oct 7 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir Deputy Chief Minister Dr Nirmal Singh on Saturday said that modern and quality infrastructure was essential for speedy development of an area and it was the endeavor of present dispensation to upgrade and strengthen the existing infrastructural edifice in the state.
Speaking after laying foundation stone of construction/upgrading of Nallah downstream under Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), Dr Singh said that first phase of this project has already been completed and assured that the remaining work would be completed within stipulated time frame.
He said that timely and quality completion of projects was priority of the state government which was pre-requisite for accelerating economic, trade and social activities.
He maintained that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi the country was witnessing a tremendous improvement in all fields of development with emphasis on equipping the unattended areas with enhanced basic services.
''Some political organizations who failed to bring remarkable change in the state economy during their tenure are trying to sabotage the pace of development to hide their failures adding that people are the real judges and they are acknowledging the work of the current dispensation,’’ said the Deputy Chief Minister.
The 577 metre long sewerage was being executed by UEED through Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) and would be completed at an estimated of Rs 3.96 crore.
