SRINAGAR: Social Welfare Minister, Sajad Gani Lone, on Friday said that Lassipora village in Budgam district’s Khansahib Assembly constituency was under examination for backward area status.
Responding to a question raised by Saif-ud-din Bhat in the upper house of the legislature, Lone said Dreygam, Kremshore, Shamsabad, Parnew, Falchill Dachan, and Kandoora Parthan villages were not found to meet the 19 parameters laid down for inclusion in the background categories.
”The state commission for backward classes has examined their socio-economic backwardness of the villages however they have been found not fulfilling the parameters. However, Lasipora (Khansahib constituency) is under examination for the inclusion,” the minister said.
