In a statement issued here, he said: “There is strong regional disparity in allocation of development funds in the region when compare to other regions of the Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir. Now, the government is trying to further create the same regional disparity within the Ramban District by neglecting all the blocks of Ramban Constituency in terms of allocating tourist villages.

On the contrary, the government is denying even the basic tourist project to enter in the region. It is a great injustice to the people of the region.
