J&K to get planning board soon

Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) Chief Minister Omar Abdullah announced that a state planning board is being constituted this year to 'achieve the development goals in consonance with aspirations of the people'.

An official spokesman said that while chairing the meeting of the Jammu District Development Board in Jammu, the chief minister said: "Comprehensive planning is an important aspect in the equitable and holistic development of the state, which has prompted us to constitute state planning board this year."

According to the spokesman, the chief minister said that reaching out to all areas in the development process and mitigating the difficulties of people is the focused concern of his government.

A well-defined state planning board would address all issues pertaining to the development demands across the state.

Abdullah stressed in the meeting that 'the management, planning and allocation of suitable funds to all areas across the state in accordance with the public demand is an uphill task in a state like Jammu and Kashmir where the indigenous income is meagre while losses are many'.
