Jammu: Socialist Democratic Party on Tuesday sought Army's assistance for social uplift of poor section in the remote terrorist affected areas of the south of Pir Panjal range in Jammu and Kashmir.

SDP president Darakhshan Andrabi, during her hour long meeting with General Officer Commanding of 16 Corps, Lt Gen J P Nehra at Nagrota headquarter, presented a memorandum to the GOC on the matter.

Years of violence and agitation have left Jammu and Kashmir way behind other states of India on the development index, she said.

Gen Nehra apprised her about army's efforts in ensuring peace and security in the Jammu region, thereby providing secure environment for inclusive growth in the state.

The GOC also apprised her about various 'Sadbhavna' activities undertaken by the army to facilitate better education and health infrastructure in remote areas.
