Budgam, Feb 17: A high-level European Union delegation comprising 22 envoys from foreign countries, who landed in Srinagar Wednesday, were welcomed traditionally at Magam in central Kashmir’s Budgam district, where they met newly elected District Development Council (DDC) chairman and other members.

According to news agency— the delegation visited Magam, where they were welcomed by the District Development Council (DDC) Chairman, Nazir Ahmad Khan and other panchayat representatives.

Khan, briefed the envoys about developmental agenda for Budgam district. Later, taking to media men, Khan said that the main motive of the meeting of DDC members was to take the different development issues with them.

“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.”
