Provincial President National Conference (NC) Devender Singh Rana Friday stressed the crucial role of people engaged with trade, commerce and industry in overall growth of the Jammu city, which has achieved the distinction of being a premier tourism and pilgrim centre in the north India.
Addressing the office bearers of newly constituted Trade and Industry Wing of NC at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhavan here this afternoon, Rana said that apart from carving out opportunities of employment and enhancing growth, the industry and trade has to ensure greater consumer satisfaction.
He said the NC was aware of the problems confronting trade and commerce and said every effort is being made to put in place necessary infrastructural facilities required in a city like Jammu that has been destination for millions of pilgrims, thousands of tourists and continuous inflow of floating population from peripheries in pursuit of greener pastures.
Rana hoped that the trade and industry will maintain its tradition of being consumer friendly and hospitable towards incoming tourists and pilgrims. “Maintaining grandeur of the gateway of tourists to Kashmir and pilgrims to Mata Vaishno Devi and Shri Amarnathji is responsibility of one and all”, he maintained.
Earlier on February 27 this year, senior functionaries of Kanak Mandi Traders Association led by President Vijay Gupta had joined the party in presence of the Rana and senior leaders.
The formation of Trade and Industry Wing is sequel to the continuous joining of prominent members of trade, commerce and industry of the Jammu city in the party fold.
