Srinagar (NVI): Undeterred by Tuesday’s Anantnag terror attack on the participants of its ambitious people-oriented ‘Back to Village-2.0 (B2V)’ drive, the Jammu and Kashmir programme across the Union Territory as planned.

A day after the terror attack during the B2V-2.0 programme at Hakura in Anantnag district in which  2 persons including a Sarpanch were killed and 3 other civilians injured, the UT Government has decided to give adequate security cover for all events under the programme, official sources said.

Meanwhile, the second phase of ‘Back to Village’ programme entered third day today. Chief Secretary B V R Subrahmanyam attended the B2V-2 programme in Udhampur district.

The second phase of mega people-oriented ‘Back to Village (B2V)’ programme, which aims to strengthen grassroots democracy and participatory development, was launched in the J&K on Monday. More than 5000 gazetted officers have been deputed for this ambitious programme to connect with the grassroot functionaries and people across the Valley.

The ‘Back to Village’ programme was launched as a unique project by the government in June 2019, for speeding up developmental tempo in rural areas and creating a genuine partnership between the administration and the people.
