Officers to fan out in 39 dists, 7 towns

AS SENIOR officers proceed to urban areas of 39 model districts and seven prominent towns to hold night camps there for the second time from August 17-19, Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav today asked them to review the progress of announcements made earlier and act against those found responsible for tardy implementation of development projects.

Much significance is being attached to the visit of the officers to the urban areas as it comes close on the heels of the proposed election to urban local bodies in September.

Addressing a meeting of secretaries and principal secretaries, who have been asked to visit the 39-districts, the Chief Minister said officers were free to take any decision in accordance with the expectations of people. He asked them to ensure that they met representatives of each and every political party and take action on their complaints.

Chief Minister said the endeavour of his government was to ensure that benefits of development reached all. Officers should  dispose of issues of public importance on the spot, as far as possible.

They should also review availability of drinking water, power supply, doctors and medicines, distribution of scholarship to students and quality of construction of roads, footpaths etc. The CM expressed concern over the delay in development of 35 districts as model districts. The remaining 35 districts would be taken up in the second phase, he said adding that action should be taken against officers responsible for not ensuring desired development of the districts taken up in the first phase.

He also expressed concern over the depleting level of groundwater and said the officers should inspect the site of the ponds being dug up in different villages. A sum of Rs 700 crore had been allocated for the purpose, he said.
