He said that every developmental work through a convergent model will be monitored properly. “Preliminary resource mapping through the help of Google or satellite should be carried out in order to identify resourceful potential sites and areas for feasible and sustainable development. This has to be done properly in a well-planned manner in accordance with the guidelines. Every developmental work should be integrated and inclusive in nature,” he said.
