Each officer to go on two-day visit, orders CM

TO KNOW the ground realities about various development projects undertaken under the Model District Plan in 39 districts, Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav today deputed 39 senior IAS officers for a two-day visit of the districts for review and verification of the ongoing development projects.

Chief Minister directed the officers to reach the respective districts allotted to them by Sunday morning and return to the State capital by Tuesday and submit their report latest by Friday (June 9). He also asked the officers to visit the district once again after a month to reconfirm the facts and to know whether there was any improvement in the overall situation and work culture.

It may be recalled that the Chief Minister had ordered a similar exercise in November last year too and a number of officers had submitted disturbing reports after visiting various districts. Nobody knows, however, the ultimate outcome of the tedious exercise.

Addressing the 39 selected officers at the Yojana Bhawan here today, Mulayam Singh Yadav reiterated that benefits of development projects and basic amenities must reach the people and laxity or corruption in development projects would not be tolerated under any circumstances.

He asked officers to submit a detailed report, the overall situation prevailing in different fields, including power, construction or repairs of roads, availability of potable water, education, food and civil supplies, health, etc. The officers have been authorised by the Chief Minister to make announcements and make promises to people, if required, that needed basic facilities, like water, roads, schools etc. would be made available, if so required.   

Mulayam Singh Yadav, however, informed the officers that funds for various development projects under the Model District Plan had already been released and about 90 per cent work had also been completed. He told them to meet people’s representatives also to get the feedback and to know the actual progress in different projects. He regretted that no district had so far been made ‘Model’ under the ambitious Model District Plan in the stipulated period of one year. “Officers play a crucial role in implementation of development projects and they should not yield to undue pressure”, the Chief Minister observed.Chief Secretary NC Bajpai, who also addressed the officers, gave them a checklist to verify the development work and asked them stay at the district headquarters and visit one nagar panchayat or nagar palika each besides physically verifying cleanliness, electricity distribution system, transformers, illegal power connections, road construction, hand pumps, encroachments, progress of Kanya Vidya Dhan Yojna, high school and Intermediate pass percentage, cleanliness of hospitals, availability of medicines, pulse polio campaign, vaccines for snake and dog bite, availability of sugar and kerosene, working of police stations, construction of chambers for advocates and  tree plantation.

DGP Bua Singh claimed the crime graph had gone down 45 per cent in the last two months due to efficient policing and announced that he would meet people in his office daily between 12 noon and 2 pm.
