Jugal inspects development of SAGY village Patrara, listens to people’s issues

‘Work on Rs 6.30 crore JJM Project to start soon’
RAJOURI: Member of Parliament, Jugal Kishore Sharma today chaired a public outreach camp at the village Patara of Sunderbani block and reviewed the progress of developmental works there.
It is pertinent to mention here that village Patrara is being developed under Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojna with the implementation of several Central sponsored schemes.
At the outset, District Development Commissioner Rajouri, Vikas Kundal gave a brief about the physical and financial achievements in respect of the SAGY village Patrara.
Later, on the instructions of the MP, the officers shared the physical and financial achievements of their respective departments in the particular village.
On the complaint of the Public about the irregular water supply, the SE Jal Shakti Department said that a water supply scheme under the Jal Jeevan Mission has been approved at an estimated cost of Rs 6.30 crore and the work on the said project would start soon.
Speaking at the meeting, the MP said that the goal of SAGY was to develop three Adarsh Grams or model villages complete with state of art facilities. The SAGY scheme encourages MPs to identify and develop one village hence, the village Patrara was selected for the year 2017-18. The MP also said that for SAGY separate funding is not provided so the public and Departments have to work in tandem to develop this village.
The MP urged the Panchayats and the public to work with vigour and underlined that SAGY aims to holistically develop village Patrara and for the same collective responsibility was needed.
“I will be visiting the village frequently in the future to facilitate the development of the area,” he added.
For better coordination and implementation of the SAGY, the MP asked the DDC Rajouri to appoint a nodal officer.
He asked the concerned officers to work collectively to ensure effective implementation of Central Schemes and generate massive awareness among the people so that they can avail the benefits of the same.
He asked the officers of different departments to organise special camps and sensitize the farmers and unemployed youth about the schemes so that Patrara village can be developed at ‘Atam Nirbar Village’.
The MP also desired for installation of Solar Street lights for Patrara and asked the DDC to submit a proposal in the matter.
Later, the MP also inspected the departmental stalls, interacted with officers and also planted a sapling in the premises of the High School Patrara.
ADDC, Pawan Parihar, ADC, Vinod Behnal; BDC Sunderbani, Arun Sharma; BDC Seri, Neena Sharma and other sarpanches, Panchs and district and sectoral officers were also present.
