Every person has a right to live a good life: Irfan Manhas
SHOPIAN, Sep 06: In a day long visit and continuing public outreach programme, DDC Vice Chairman and State General Secretary Youth Apni Party Irfan Manhas along with DDC Keller-I Choudhary Fazil Din and party functionaries visited Sanimarg, a far flung tribal village of District Shopian. Manhas discussed various issues related to basic amenities with locals and youth.
People of the village demanded construction of the road which remains a burning issue and a long pending demand of the area. “In this digital era, we don’t have a road connectivity with district headquarters and the village gets totally cut off during winter season due to heavy snow fall to make our lives more miserable”, said one of the locals.
Manhas informed the locals that the road has already been taken up in one of the district plans and very soon the village will have road connectivity. People appreciated his efforts and thanked him for fulfilling their genuine demand.
Manhas along with the visiting team also met several delegations from adjoining villages and discussed various tribal centric issues. He assured them that every issue will be taken up and sorted out in a time bound manner.
While briefing the media, DDC Vice Chairman Manhas said, he felt overwhelmed and blessed the way people of Sanimarg especially elders and youth came out to welcome him with open arms and a priceless smile on their faces despite of going through extreme hardships. “Every person has a right to live a good life”, he said.
Reaching out to every soul in the district and solve their problems is my mission, reiterated Irfan Manhas.
“We are working hard on ground for the betterment of the people and we will make sure basic amenities of life are available to the people living in far flung areas”, said DDC Keller-I Choudhary Fazil Din while addressing the media.
Manhas was accompanied by Apni Party Block President Keller and DDC Keller I Chaudhary Fazil Din, Sarpanch Rehan Khan, Sarpanch Manzoor Ahmad along with several party workers and youth activists.
