Govt. contemplating to develop S.R Gunj as Heritage Market: Gul

Advisor to the Chief Minister Mr. Mubarak Gul today said that government is contemplating to develop S.R Gunj as a heritage market. The proposed project aims at restoring the glory of the bazaar by giving it a heritage look so that it emerges as favourite and a must go place for shoppers, tourists and heritage lovers.

The deputation representing Beopar Mandal Downtown along with prominent citizens of Shaher-i-khas today met the Advisor and discussed issues relating to the improvement and upgradation of the bazaar and apprised him of their other demands as well. The deputation also sought sumo service from Batmalloo to Shaherikhas.

Mr. Gul also received several deputations from various districts of the valley here this morning. They presented memoranda of their demands and requested for expeditous completion of ongoing infrastructure-upgradation schemes for faster benefits.

The advisor gave patient hearing to all the deputations and assured them of sympathetic government consideration for redressal of genuine grievances. The advisor also issued immediate directions to the concerned departments for follow up action. He said up-gradation of basic facilities in all areas of the State has been flagged as priority area and government is keen to fast-track development process.
