J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Sunday praised the “tireless contribution of corona warriors” and frontline workers in the June episode of “Awaam ki Awaaz” programme aired on all local and primary channels of All India Radio in the Union Territory.

“With their hard work, they have laid the foundation stone for the future of Jammu and Kashmir. Today, Jammu and Kashmir is witnessing a new dawn and is moving ahead as an equal society. The credit goes to these warriors who dedicated themselves to the cause,” he said.

He said J&K had achieved great strides in vaccine coverage. “People are discussing the ‘J&K model of vaccination’ and want to replicate the same in other parts of the country,” he added.

“Our corona warriors in Bandipora — Dr. Jehangir, Ms. Shamima Begum, Ms. Nilofar Jan, and their companions — reached Weyan by walking 18 km, and due to their hard work, it became the first village in the country to achieve 100% vaccination coverage,” he said.

The L-G said that this was only because of the dedication and toil of hard-working health workers.

“By June 30, we have set a target of 100% vaccination in Jammu and Kashmir and I sincerely hope that you will fully help our health workers in this, giving a befitting reply to the elements spreading vaccine hesitancy,” Mr. Sinha said.

He said that in the coming days, there was only one objective — to accelerate the economic development of J&K and make it multi-dimensional.

“Jammu and Kashmir is full of self-confidence, I hear the echo of self-power among the people,” he added.

He said that for the last 11 months, the administration had been sincere in exploring options to provide “as much electricity generated in the last 74 years to the people of the UT in the next four years”.

“For this, projects worth ₹52,821 crore have already been approved,” Mr. Sinha said.
