Chief minister Vasundhara Raje on Friday made a series of surprise visits to government-run schools, hostels and other institutions in Bundi to take stock of developmental projects as part of her government’s “aapka zila aapki sarkar” campaign.
Raje, who is on a 3-day visit to the district to take feedback of the initiatives undertaken by her government, found a numbers inconsistencies at most institutes she visited.
During a surprise visit to a scheduled tribe hostel for girls, she found cattle roaming freely within the complex and fodder scattered all around.
Expressing her displeasure, she instructed officials to use the campus only for the purpose for which it has been set up.
Raje also inspected a girls’ hostel at the Babu Jagjeevanram College, where students informed her about the problem of encroachment of hostel land and lack of a boundary wall.
She instructed collector Shivangi Swarankar to improve the facilities at the hostel and to construct a boundary wall.
Later in the day, the CM visited Bhairupura ojha village where she inspected the godown of the gram sewa sahkari samiti, the water ATM, a health sub centre and the government-run school at the panchayat office.
After villagers informed her about the absence of healthcare workers at the centre, she instructed officials to take strict action against the guilty staff.
Raje also visited the Atal sewa kendra at Khatkar where villagers complained about the delay in issue of lease deeds. She instructed officials to re-validate lease deeds and issue them without delay.
After inspecting an annapoorna bhandar at the village, the CM instructed the coordinator of the government-run store to keep updated list of consumer products and issue cash receipts to customers.
At the government senior secondary school selected under the adarsh gram yojana in Pipaliya village, she was appalled with lack toilets in the school for students. Raje instructed state education secretary Naresh Pal Gangwar to improve the facilities at the school.
Interacting with villagers, Raje took feedback from them about their problems and development projects being carried out by the government. Raje also appreciated the officials on receiving information of good works in the district.
Had lunch at a Dalit’s house
Raje had lunch at the house of Babulal Bairwa, a Dalit in Matunda village. “I will remember the taste of the delicious food since it was cooked on a chulha or clay stove,” she said after savouring the simple lunch.
BJP to retain power
Addressing party workers in Bundi on Thursday night, Raje said the BJP will emerge victorious with a sound majority in the assembly elections slated 2018. The BJP will also win in the general elections in the state in 2019, she said.
Describing BJP workers as the backbone of the party, Raje urged them to gear up for the elections. She also asked party workers to “educate” people about the public welfare schemes taken up by her government.
