I am overwhelmed with your enthusiasm

I am overwhelmed with your enthusiasm and spirit and hope that all of us can work together towards the development of the village. The initial challenges in implementing the development work have been successfully overcome and I am sure that the execution of the work will pick up speed. We want to showcase the development in Donja as a case for other villages across the country, he said while addressing media.
