Addressing a huge public gathering at Hardu-Dalwan village-a remote area in Chari-Sharif constituency Rather said road upgradation and better road connectivity was imperative in the area as it is a major fruit production zone in district Budgam especially famous for Kashmiri Nakh in the domestic and national fruit market.

He also directed the concerned R&B Engineers to take up completion of Zinpanchal-Dalwan Road immediately.

Rather also ordered upgradation and wall fencing of the ground of Government Higher Secondary School, Dalwan through Rural Development Department so that it is made fit for sports purposes. He enjoined upon the students to take part in extra- curricular activities also as it was necessary for building a sound mind and sound physique.

He said it was my cherished desire to provide all the basic facilities to the people of rural areas at par with major towns and cities hoping that his dream would come true shortly due to pro-people policies of the Present Government.
