Jammu, Nov 7 (UNI) The Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad today said the coalition government was committed to political stability and economic development in the state.
Addressing a gathering here this afternoon to distribute orders for conferment of ownership rights of State land to about 4000 farmers of Jammu Province and outskirts under the Roshni scheme, Mr Azad said he was resolute in his mission of development and taking the state forward on the road to progress.
Mr Azad described the distribution of orders for conferment of ownership rights of State land as a Diwali Gift for the farmers and said, ''it will make you the owner of the land that was under your occupation for years but without proprietary rights''.
''I do not believe in slogans and hollow speeches but would rather engage in practical work,'' he said, adding that slogans could earn one a seat in Parliament or Council but these did not bring about development of basic amenities for people or their economic self reliance.
''Hundreds of infrastructure related projects were under execution in all the three regions of the State and even the remotest areas were reaping equal benefits of development,'' the Chief Minister said.
Meanwhile, Mr Azad also informed that the Prime Minister convened three Round Table Conferences (RTCs) in which all political parties and groups of the three regions of Jammu and Kashmir participated and put across their views on important issues and the recommendations of the Working Groups would be implemented.
