During interview, he said, “I am overwhelmed by your enthusiasm and spirit and hope that all of us can work together towards 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 study for other villages across the country.” 

Under the SAGY, a water tank will be constructed and pipelines will be laid for providing potable water to houses in Donja, the release said.
