Srinagar : J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Saturday said it is not just Police and security forces’ responsibility to establish peace but also the prime objective of every stakeholder of the community as well as those in civil administration to ensure all sections of society enjoy fruits of development.
He said that those with vested interest were rattled by overall transformation in the union territory and fast-paced socio-economic growth.
Lieutenant Governor said this while chairing a high-level meeting to review the progress and further action plan for saturation of deliverables during the ongoing Back to Village programme.
“Back to Village is the celebration of inclusive development, Jan Bhagidari and public awareness. It is a unique and ambitious exercise of taking government to the doorsteps of people,” observed the Lt Governor.
The Lt Governor highlighted the role of the people, public representatives, and government departments in the peace and development process.
He said it was not just the Police and Security forces’ responsibility to establish peace but also the prime objective of every stakeholder of the community as well as those in the civil administration to ensure all sections of society enjoy the fruits of development.
“Back to Village also provides an opportunity to every single individual to foil the nefarious attempt of anti-social elements. People should expose justification or condoning of terrorism under whatever pretext by those trying to disrupt peace,” the Lt Governor said.
“People are now coming out on the street to isolate individuals spreading hatred and inciting violence. People want development, prosperity for the society and a better future for the country.
