Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Monday admitted Doda was the “most underdeveloped region” and pledged to work “tirelessly” for its development.
On the second leg of her three-day visit to Chenab region, Mufti yesterday reached the Doda district headquarters from Kishtwar and convened a public grievance redressal camp.
The demands put forth during the day-long camp included the construction of Doda-Kapran road via Dessa to connect the district with the Kashmir Valley, installation of street lights in the towns and promotion of Doda and Bhaderwah on the tourism map of the state, an official spokesperson said.
“It is the most underdeveloped region with the least connectivity,” Mufti wrote on her Twitter handle on Monday. “We will work tirelessly to develop Doda and make it model district,” she said.
Mufti said “after interacting with the people of Doda, one can imagine why late Sheikh Saheb had started his public outreach from the erstwhile Doda district”.
Former chief minister Sheikh Mohmmad Abdullah had started outreach from Doda district by introducing single-window system of administration from Doda district
