This was stated here today by Dr Jitendra Singh,Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology, during a two-hours luncheon meeting hosted by local officials and activists in Udhampur.

Dr Jitendra Singh said that a lot of developmental work has taken place in Udhampur-Doda-Kathua Lok Sabha Constituency in the last 9 years but the need is to spread greater awareness about the same in each corner of the constituency.

He said that it was a matter of pride for the people of Udhampur that two days back while inaugurating Bharat Mandapam, world’s largest Convention Centre, Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioned the highest railway bridge in Reasi, while the longest road tunnel “Chenani to Nashri” named after Syama Prasad Mukherjee was also inaugurated by him.
