Baramulla: In a significant move, the Rural Development Department (RDD) on Wednesday started its development work under different border areas of Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri and Boniyar blocks.
Abdul Rasheed, Block Development Officer, Uri told news agency ANI, ” We have provided 20,100 man-days of work, and by the end of this month, we hope to double it. The Uri border areas are always in the news due to continued shelling by Pakistani forces. Local residents suffer and unemployment was an additional concern for them. With the commencement of these development activities, they can rebuild their lives and get back on their feet.
Choudhary Muhammad Shafi, Chairman Block Development Council, Uri, said “We have done our best to provide a better environment for the labourers and residents of this area. In the coming weeks, we hope to create more opportunities.”
