Rangreth residents thank LG Sinha for playfield development

Srinagar: Residents of Rangreth, Rawalpora, and surrounding areas express heartfelt appreciation to Lieutenant Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, Shri Manoj Sinha, and other dignitaries for their pivotal role in developing a 70-kanal playfield at Sikh Nambal, Rangreth.

The community, particularly the youth, extends gratitude to Lieutenant Governor Shri Manoj Sinha for approving this significant project, marking progress for the area. Former MLA Syed Muhammad Altaf Bukhari, Administrative Secretary Sarmad Hafeez, Secretary Nuzhat Gull, Deputy Commissioner Akshay Labroo, Financial Advisor Yasir Sharief, and Executive Engineers from the Sports Department are also acknowledged for their support.

Government sanctioning of the project in 2020 has led to remarkable advancements, showcasing visionary leadership and commitment to sports development. Dawood Ahmed, a sports enthusiast, expressed, “We have conducted many tournaments on this ground, attracting people from various areas.”

Local resident Parvez Ahmad Wani expressed gratitude to the sports department for constructing much-needed playgrounds in the area. The newly developed playfield, spread over more than 64 kanals of land, has become a hub for residents of all ages, enjoying morning jogs.

Sonu Singh, another local, shared, “Earlier, we had no place for a morning walk as walking on the roadside was uncomfortable.” He and others now enjoy the newly developed facilities.

The extensive work, starting with earth filling, has been acknowledged as a project worth crores. The community urges authorities to undertake earth filling for the remaining 35 kanals, emphasizing its crucial role in youth welfare.

Gratitude is extended for resolving long-pending issues, positively impacting the community’s well-being.

The local community advocates for initial installation of fencing, subdivision of the stadium into sections for cricket and football, establishment of a practice area, and addition of proper seating arrangements for enhanced sports-watching experience.

“We once again express gratitude to LG Manoj Sinha and J&K Sports Council for helping us with the earth filling. We appeal to LG and concerned authorities to conclude the remaining 35 kanals,” said Mohammad Yasin Parray, President of the Social Welfare Committee.

Earth filling of the playfield in 2023 stands as a testament to successful convergence efforts, and the community looks forward to continued collaboration for holistic development.

“We appreciate the work done by Javaid Ahmad Dar, contractor ‘Lucky Traders,’ and his team for completing earth filling of 35 kanals of the playfield,” they said.
