Jammu, Jan 17: Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu reviewed the progress of a number of projects in Jammu and said the administration will expedite the works.
He visited the market place and tourism reception centre to assess the facilities there. Murmu was accompanied by top divisional-level officials and heads of departments.
During a visit to the Tawi river bank the L-G was briefed by Ajeet Sahu, the principal secretary of the Irrigation and Flood Control Department, about the progress of its beautification project and the Jammu lake project.
