STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: While hailing the decision of Prime Minister and Union Home Minister regarding visit of Cabinet Ministers to UTs Jammu and Kashmir to assess the developmental scenario President of the National Mazdoor Conference (NMC) Subash Shastri on Wednesday hoped that visit of these Union Ministers will address the long pending issues of the people at the grass root level. “These visits have showed the Modi Govt is committed towards the development of newly created UTs Jammu and Kashmir,” he added. “Visit by Central Ministers is simultaneously plugging the gap of developmental works by way of sanctioning reasonable amount of funds on spot which is very appreciable,” Shastri said while addressing NMC workers meet here.
