Work as a link between govt and beneficiaries, officials told

District In-charge Minister Vinay Kumar Sorake said that officials should work as a link between the government and the beneficiaries.

Speaking after inaugurating the ‘Jana Samparka’ programme, the minister said the government had initiated many pro-people programmes and it was the responsibility of the officials to deliver the benefits directly to the eligible beneficiaries.

The lack of commitment on the part of officials towards the work will not be tolerated, he cautioned. The minister said that a mass contact programme was organised to address the grievances of the public against the system.

Sorake said there were a lot of complaints  from people against the administrative inefficiency, where the public were harassed to avail the benefits. They have to spend days together wandering from one government office to another, to avail even minor benefits, he added.

Asserting that the government would ensure title deeds to the beneficiaries at the earliest under 94C programme, the minister said the work had been taken up to speed up the process. The district has achieved 99.29 per cent success in the implementation of open defecation-free programme.

Sorake said that government was ensuring better education facilities besides promoting skill development programmes. He said under ‘Grama Vikasa Yojane,’ five gram panchayats in each Assembly constituency would be adopted and given funds to implement better infrastructure facilities. He said under ‘Namma Grama, Namma Rasthe Yojane’ 20 km of road would be covered in each constituency. Funds up to Rs 18 crore - Rs 20 crore will be released for the purpose, he added.

Stating that the proposal for the programmes under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana is sent to the government, the minister said the State government was expecting funds from CRF (Central Road Funds).

MLA Pramodh Madhwaraj said that elected representatives and bureaucrats were public servants. He directed the officials in the taluk office to disposed of all pending files immediately. A mass contact programme will be organised to provide spot solution to the grievances of the public.

He lamented that increasing number of potholes were a matter of concern. However, there are only limited funds released for the purpose. He said the Assembly constituency had received Rs 40 lakh, while the actual requirement was Rs 1.36 crore.

He said he was organising a meeting with the engineers on October 6 to look into the possibilities of developing the constituency.

As many as 1,060 beneficiaries received benefits under various development schemes, initiated by the government, on the occasion.
