State chief secretary BB Vyas took up the matter with concerned army officers during a visit to the proposed airstrip in Kishtwar, the spokesman said.

Byas sought the army's cooperation in getting issues resolved at the earliest so that the much-needed airstrip could be made operational.

The chief secretary said government was keen to make the airstrip functional at the earliest for the convenience of the people as also to increase the tourist footfall in the area.

Vyas was in Kishtwar on Tuesday to take stock of the progress of developmental works on the ground.

Expressing concern over the sluggish pace of fund utilisation, the chief secretary asked officers to access resources available for developmental works and make optimum and judicious use of the same to build requisite public infrastructure in the area.
