J&K Finance Minister, Dr Haseeb A Drabu Tuesday said that a holistic and futuristic plan of action has been devised for the overall development of district Pulwama to do away with the past “injustices” with the district.
Addressing a PDP convention in South Kashmir district, along with PDP president Mehbooba Mufti, Drabu said, “despite being declared a district head quarter in early seventies, Pulwama continues to face colossal infrastructure deficit in almost all the crucial sectors including road communication, education, health, drinking water supply, horticulture and tourism resulting in sluggish economic growth and swelling unemployment.”
He said despite having a flourishing horticulture sector, there has been almost negligent focus on this crucial sector.
Drabu said a new plan of action has already been put into action to address the development deficit in the district. “The people would soon see the transformation on ground as the new initiatives take shape,” he said.
