BUDGAM, SEPTEMBER 18: At Reshipora, Budgam, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha today laid the cornerstone for the eagerly anticipated 125-bed District Hospital Complex that would cost Rs 49.32 crore.


The Lt. Governor offered his congratulations to the Budgam residents during his speech. In terms of our collective evolution, it is a momentous day. The 125-bed hospital, according to him, will satisfy the public’s long-standing desire and goal of having all medical services under one roof.

“The health of the people is the administration’s top priority, and this project is a testament to our commitment to bring better health facilities to small towns, strengthen public health service delivery, minimise inconvenience and referrals to Tertiary health care centres in Srinagar,” the Lt. Governor said.

The Lt. Governor addressed a sizable crowd and emphasised the administration’s efforts to promote open and accountable government.

In the previous three years, the Lt. Governor said, “We have come a long way in terms of swift project execution within the allotted period and eliminated the gap between the aspirations of the people and the delivery by administration with dedication and commitment.”

He said that the UT Administration is making every effort to guarantee there is no room for bias and corruption under the direction of the Hon’ble Prime Minister.

According to him, the goal of our policies is to ensure that the poorer sections of society are empowered and that the living conditions of the average person are raised.

The Lt. Governor paid respects to the fallen members of the Police and Security Forces in Budgam.

“The UT government is dedicated to establishing a Jammu and Kashmir that is free from fear, terrorism, corruption, and a backwards-looking mindset. We honour the troops and police officers from our country who gave their lives in the fight against terrorism. We will eradicate terrorism from J&K, I tell the populace. This is our intention, the Lt Governor said.

He urged the populace to carry out their responsibilities and aid in the development of J&K.

In all 20 districts, development must become a strong people’s movement, and the society must isolate any forces attempting to sabotage the peace.

He said that individuals who profited from the struggle and stopped the J&K population from advancing in society, as well as those who built their homes overseas and sent their kids to study there, believe that they alone have the exclusive right to all government resources.

According to the Lt. Governor, we have been successful in dismantling the foundation of the ecosystem of war profiteers and will put the last nail in the coffin of these subversive forces.

The Lt Governor discussed the PM Vishwakarma programme, which was introduced by the Hon. Prime Minister. He said the programme offers benefits such as a toolkit incentive of Rs. 15,000, training for artisans, which is paid at a rate of Rs. 500 per day, collateral-free credit support up to Rs. 1 lakh (first tranche), Rs. 2 lakh (second tranche), at a reduced interest rate of 5%, and incentives for digital transactions and marketing support.

The reforming programmes that the Central Government has implemented over the last several years have mostly benefited J&K. The Lt. Governor said that every effort would be made to spread the advantages of this Scheme across the UT and improve the lot of Jammu and Kashmir’s artists and craftspeople who use their hands and tools to create things.

The final list will be announced at the UT level, the qualified beneficiaries will be recognised at the panchayat level, their ID cards will be made at the district level, and he said.

The Lt Governor praised the District Administration and public officials for their admirable efforts to build cutting-edge facilities for the public, saying that they had served as an example for other districts to follow. He said, “I have faith that the dream of Smart City Budgam will come true very soon.”

The establishment of Cluster University in Budgam, he said, has also been kicked off by the authorities.

“Deputy Commissioner Budgam has suggested the Budgam property for Cluster University. The plan is being worked on by the Divisional Commissioner for Kashmir, and the Lt. Governor expressed optimism that the foundation for the Cluster University of Kashmir at Budgam will be laid soon.

Chairman of the District Development Council in Budgam, Sh Nazir Ahmad Khan, thanked the Lt Governor-led UT Administration for quickly sanctioning and approving the construction of the District Hospital Complex in Budgam.

Dr. Arun Kumar Mehta, the chief secretary, Bhupinder Kumar, the secretary for health and medical education, Vijay Bidhuri, the divisional commissioner for Kashmir, and Akshay Labroo, the deputy commissioner for Budgam were there, along with PRI members, top government officials, and people from all walks of life.
