He said in Ganderbal district 2800 Awas were distributed among the people under Prime Minister Awas Yojna Scheme. “Let me clarify, not a single non J&K resident has been given Awas in Ganderbal district. But some people can’t digest seeing poor man building their homes and hatch conspiracies to oppose the move,” the LG said.
The LG said that gone are the days when schools and colleges would remain shut on Pakistan’s call or on the call of “its stooges here.” “J&K is on the path of peace and prosperity. People are living a peaceful life and enjoying night life as well,” he said.
He said that 1.88 billion visitors visited J&K in 2017.
