BHADERWAH, Sept 11: The picturesque town of Bhadarwah, often referred to as "Mini Kashmir," has been unjustly neglected on the tourism front by the present administration, according to Rattan Lal Gupta, Provincial President JKNC Jammu. The failure to prioritize Bhadarwah as a key tourism destination has resulted in inadequate infrastructure and a lack of necessary amenities for tourists.
Gupta emphasized that Bhadarwah, known for its serene landscapes, enchanting valleys, and rich cultural heritage, has long been a potential tourist hotspot in Jammu and Kashmir. However, the government's lack of vision and commitment in harnessing the tourism potential of Bhadarwah has dealt a severe blow to the aspirations of the people and hampered the growth of the region.
Gupta also raised concerns about the continued neglect of picturesque Jai Valley, considered one of the most beautiful tourist spots but lacking adequate tourism facilities.
At the meeting chaired by Qayoom Baghwan, District President Doda Rural (Bhaderwah), Sheikh Mehboob Iqbal, Incharge of Bhaderwah Constituency, highlighted the hardships faced by the common masses, including inadequate medical facilities, insufficient ration supplies, and unreliable power supply. He expressed his belief that the J&K National Conference is the only political party capable of fulfilling the aspirations of the people in Bhadarwah.
Acknowledging the situation, Rattan Lal Gupta urged party cadre to prepare diligently for the upcoming polls, stand united, work tirelessly, and connect with the people to address their concerns effectively. He stressed the importance of reaffirming the party's commitment to serving the interests and aspirations of the people and promised to fight for their rights and uplift the neglected areas of the entire district Doda, including Bhadarwah.
Sheikh Bashir Ahmed, Provincial Secretary JKNC Jammu, reaffirmed the party's commitment to fighting for the rights and well-being of the people of Bhadarwah and pressing for the development and upliftment of the region.
Pardeep Bali, Provincial Secretary Jammu, called on workers to strengthen secularism, socialism, and democratic values in Jammu and Kashmir.
The meeting was attended by various party functionaries, including Dr. Sahid Mughal, Khan Mohd Khan, Hafizullah Bhat, Ayaz Khan, Arshad Khan, Variender Kumar, Shakoor Ahmed, Raj Mohd, Irshad Ahmed Athkar, Farooq, and other District Blocks, Panches, and Sarpanches.
