Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said that his government was focusing on providing necessary infrastructure and manpower at hospitals, schools and other institutions so as to ensure quality services to the people.

"Unless our hospitals, schools and colleges are manned by qualified faculty, required technicians and ministerial staff, the prompt and up to the mark delivery cannot be assured," Omar said while interacting with delegations during his weekly 'Awaami Mulaqat' (Meet the People).

He said equal focus was on both consolidation and expansion of the infrastructure. "The upgradation of existing infrastructure and creation of new units along with equipping these with men and material are receiving attention simultaneously."

The Chief Minister said a healthy and educated Jammu and Kashmir is his endeavour, and a comprehensive policy has been put in place to improve the quality of education and healthcare facilities.

Omar said the five important sectors of health, education, road communication, water supply and power generation were receiving persistent attention of the government to give better services to the people.
