SRINAGAR: Elected representatives being the custodians of “public interest” have an enormous responsibility to project the concerns, problems and priorities of their constituents before the government, Governor Satya Pal Malik said on Wednesday.
Appealing to all elected representatives to join hands with the government in addressing the needs of the public, the Governor announced that his government had approved a major initiative through setting up of the J&K Infrastructure Development Finance Corporation (JKIDFC).
Through JKIFDC, the government will spend up to Rs 8,000 crore on completing unfinished/languishing infrastructure projects, the Governor’s office said.
The Governor requested elected representatives to identify all such incomplete/languishing works in their constituencies.
Elected representatives may forward their requests through the Deputy Commissioner or directly to the Planning Development & Monitoring Department of the State Government, the Governor’s office said.
