“We talked to them about Panchayati Raj. We told them what we have and what more is needed. The entire district should be on the path of development. This is what we told them,” he said. “Since district Budgam is a backward district, we pressed for fast track development and urged them to persuade centre to give special preference to Budgam district.”
