NCs Mendhar MLA Javed Rana has said that the callous attitude of State government and relentless miss adventure along the LoC will not be allowed to affect the pace of development works in Mendhar,

While listening to the grievances of local residents and taking stock of the progress of under-construction Harni-BG bridge and Harni-BG road, the MLA said concerted efforts are the need of the hour to turn around the development scenario of Mendhar. He urged the locals to get rid of primordial attitudes and get united for development and prosperity.

The work on Harni-BG bridge which is being built at an estimated cost of Rs. 4cr was resumed in 2014 after being stopped in 2007, is nearing completion. The MLA informed the locals that Harni-BG road which couldn’t be completed under NABARD has now been recommended for World Bank funding and has been taken over by the JKPCC. In the meantime, to improve it’s dilapidated condition the PWD(R&B) authorities have been directed for necessary resurfacing, he assured. Mr. Rana assured them that he will leave no stone unturned to improve the overall road connectivity in Mendhar, especially interior links.

During meeting, the locals raised several other issues including discrepancies in BPL list, issue of Aahaar card etc. and asked the MLA to direct the Sub-divisional Administration for their redressal.

Meanwhile, the MLA reminded the district administration for expeditious preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR) for concrete bunkers and announced 20% of his Constituency Development Fund(CDF) for the purpose to be utilised in convergence with MGNREGA. Mr. Rana had earlier instructed the DDC Poonch for immediate preparation of DPR.
