'Reclaim lands reserved for schools'

Zilla panchayat president Ravi Kushalappa directed the education department officials to reclaim encroached lands of government school in the taluk.

Speaking at a meeting of the taluk panchayat here recently, he said there were allegations about encroachment of the school lands.

The SDMC and teachers should discuss the issue and take measures to reclaim the lands.
The engineers should look into the poor quality of work taken up with the funds available under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan. The honorarium paid to Asha workers should be increased, he said.

Taluk panchayat president Hosamane Kavitha Prabhakar directed the officials to prepare an action plan for repairing and constructing anganwadi buildings.

“A sum of Rs 21 lakh released by the government should be utilised effectively,” she said.

Members said that several anganwadi centres did not have any infrastructure. The work on a few anganwadi buildings have remained incomplete.

CDPO Madappa said an action plan will be prepared to provide infrastructure to anganwadi centres. As many as six anganwadi centres are yet to be repaired.

Taluk veterinary officer Dr Chidananda said the sanctioned posts of veterinary doctors in the taluk was eight.

But, only two doctors are functioning. “Without doctors, we had to close a few hospitals,” he said.
