The Government of Jammu and Kashmir is trying to develop modern urban infrastructure in Jammu city.
In this direction LG Manoj Sinha inaugurated a multi-level parking facility at Panjtirthi, Jammu.
He observed that there is a need to focus on the concept of augmented city for the development of urban areas.
We have to add value to the potential of Jammu city, its tradition, heritage, culture, uniqueness and how it can grow economically.
Improving the quality of life of every citizen is the prime objective of the administration. We have to increase the capacity of Jammu City to serve the citizens, preserve the environment, make public services efficient, boost local economy, create opportunities for public-private partnership and add value to the City’s growth potential, its tradition, heritage, culture and uniqueness.
Underscoring the significance of public participation in the development process, he said, the power of Jan Bhagidari will shape the future of our socio-economic growth. At the same time there should be a balance of rights and duties of citizens to spur overall development with basic facilities, employment opportunities and maintenance of resources, he added.
He also highlighted the unprecedented work being done in Jammu and Kashmir in the last three years through people’s participation and proactive citizen-centric governance.
