Jammu, June 10 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad today said the sound basis laid by his government during the last three years for progress would soon see Jammu and Kashmir emerging among the frontline states of the country in terms of development.
''The development process has been, for the first time, taken to remote areas and neglected pockets that, more or less, remained out of the development strategy of governments in the past and I believe in equal distribution of resources to ensure equitable progress,'' Mr Azad said while addressing a public meetings in Doda district before inaugurating the classes in the newly set up Degree College at Kilhotran.
''The hallmark of my government is justice with all regions and people, irrespective of which political ideology they belong to,'' Mr Azad said adding that work culture has yielded excellent results and those who earlier expressed cynicism over the idea are now eating their own words.
''J&K is in for big transformation on the rural front,'' the Chief Minister said and urged the people to see and appreciate the pace and extent of development made during the past three years.
