Early Times Report

Jammu, Oct 4: Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of 263 development projects worth Rs.1960 crore in Jammu today. These include the inauguration of 82 projects of around Rs 500 crore and foundation stone laying of 181 projects of around Rs 1460 crore.
Several dignitaries including the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha, Union Minister Jitendra Singh and the Union Home Secretary were present on the occasion.
The Union Home Minister said that 14 projects of Urban Development Department costing Rs 31 crore, construction of 48 roads costing Rs 402 crore, Jal Jeevan Mission costing Rs 168 crore and 41 schemes worth Rs 1112 crore have been launched to connect every village of Jammu with road. He said that about 77 lakh cards under Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana have been issued. Under the Saubhagya scheme, Prime Minister Narendra Mod has worked to provide electricity to 8 lakh 57 thousand such houses where electricity was not available even after 75 years of independence. He said that this journey of development is an answer to those who used to ask what has happened after the abrogation of Article 370.
He said that it is a great achievement to have one thousand PACS in Jammu and Kashmir because it is beneficial for farmers. He said that those who want development have faith in the developmental journey, while those who are involved in corruption have nothing to do with development.
Shah said that for the first time, it is Prime Minister Modi, who has worked to recognize Kashmiri, Dogri, Urdu and Hindi as official languages because if the language of governance is local then the administration becomes more accountable.
He said that now Jammu and Kashmirdoes not witness the incidents of stone pelting as the government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi is moving ahead on the path of development.
Shah said that the government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi has adopted a policy of zero tolerance against terrorism, and it is because of this that the supporters of terrorism sitting in the administration have been identified and action has been taken against them. He said that there has been a reduction of about 54 percent in terrorist incidents, 84 percent in the casualties of security forces and about 22 percent in the number of people going to the terrorist organisations.
Shah said that by giving the youth computers and jobs instead of stones and guns, Prime Minister Modi has shown them the way towards a bright future. Narendra Modi’s government has worked to provide rights to the underprivileged, amended the domicile law, rehabilitated migrants and refugees and has provided assistance of up to Rs.5 lakhs to 53000 families.
The Union Home Minister said that under the Prime Minister’s Development Package, about 63 projects have been initiated in Jammu at a cost of Rs.80,000 crore. The work of Kiru Project in Hydro Power Electricity at a cost of Rs 4,287 crore is under progress. Work on the Kar scheme worth Rs 4,633 crore , Rs 2,793 crore for Shahpur Kundi and the Rs 11,908 crore Poonch power project will start soon. He said that no one can match the development work initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Home Minister said that we do not make empty promises, but want to end corruption and terrorism and ensure that Jammu and Kashmir reaches top position in the race for development in the country.
