DREAMS COMING TRUE
After the bifurcation of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories with abrogation of controversial articles 370 and 35A, the people of Jammu and Kashmir witnessed numerous reformative measures which brought a sea-change across J&K, earlier never witnessed in the history of erstwhile state. Earlier the people of J&K were suffering a lot due to lack of facilities as well as basic amenities of life with no one there to listen to the grievances but the present Government not only ensured a people-friendly administration, where even a common man can approach the highest chair without any hindrance to highlight his or her grievances. Besides giving a major boost to the development projects lying pending in J&K, the Government also launched a number of programmes and schemes for developing necessary infrastructure in order to provide all necessary facilities to the people of which they were deprived during earlier seven decades. Further it was only due to the people-friendly attitude of the administration that a number of welfare schemes, aimed to improve the socio-economic status of the people were launched and effectively implemented at ground level. One can easily judge about the level of changes witnessed by J&K by the fact that the people of the erstwhile state, which at a point of time were not getting even basic health care facilities, have now been provided several prestigious institutes equipped with ultramodern machines and manpower. Even two prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) are under construction, one each in both the regions, are under construction and expected to start functioning very soon. Moreover, in the recent initiatives of the Government to invite outside investors into the Union territory for setting up their units, several eminent hospitals have also expressed their interest and some of them are all set to start their branch in J&K very soon including Apollo. This journey of J&K, from a deprived state to ensuing hub of medical treatment in north India, is the result of the dedicated and efficient working of the ruling dispensation which has always accorded a prioritized treatment to Union Territory in every sector and left no stone unturned in steering J&K ahead on the path of progress and prosperity like other states and UTs.
