Take action against inactive subordinates: DyCM

Deputy chief minister and district in-charge minister G Parameshwara warned of action against deputy commissioner Dr K Rakesh Kumar and Zilla Panchayat Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Annies Kanmani Joy of disciplinary action if they failed to take action against inactive subordinates who have failed to implement government projects.

Deputy chief minister and district in-charge minister G Parameshwara has hinted that the government would commission a cold storage facility for agricultural produces in the district. 

"Tumakuru district doesn't have a cold storage facility, while farmers of the district are dependent on the one at Madakasira in Andhra Pradesh. The officers of the department concerned should immediately submit a proposal in this regard," he said while chairing a KDP meeting at the DC's office.

He warned of action against deputy commissioner Dr K Rakesh Kumar and Zilla Panchayat Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Annies Kanmani Joy of disciplinary action if they failed to take action against inactive subordinates who have failed to implement government projects.

"The progress under various housing schemes, Ganga Kalyan scheme and other projects are not satisfactory. A stern warning should be issued to heads of the departments concerned or the government will take action against the DC and CEO," he said.

The officers told the meeting that about 35,000 houses and sites have been allotted under various housing schemes to beneficiaries. About 11,269 houses are under construction.

Parameshwara was not satisfied with the answers.

"The government can't tolerate slow pace of work. At the government we assure houses and sites to people, but what is the use if the officers don't work effectively? We won't tolerate this any more," he said.

"Borewell digging work under Ganga Kalyan project is not satisfactory. Steps should be taken up to dig more borewells. There should be power connection to borewells that have been dug in the next two months," he directed the Bescom officers.

The DC said that instructions have been given to the Bescom to provide the power connection immediately.

The Dy CM directed the officers to identify the dilapidated school buildings and take up repair works, besides construction of toilets.

On MLA JC Madhuswamy and BC Nagesh's references to drinking water Supply, he said that the government has declared 9 taluks as drought-hit.

"Steps should be taken up to ensure drinking water supply. The DC has been instructed to ensure funds immediately. The DC will arrange the funds if the task force headed by the MLA fails to prepare an action plan," he said.

Turuvekere MLA Masala Jayaram told the meeting that government did not declare Turuvekere as drought-hit.

"There is a severe water crisis in the taluk and hence the government should declare Turuvekere as drought-hit," he requested.

"Turuvekere would be recognised as drought-hit in the second list and the DC has already submitted a proposal in this regard," Parameshwara said.

He said that the Central government had appreciated farm ponds in the state. He directed the joint director of the agriculture department to complete the remaining farm ponds within two months.

Ministers and MPs directed the DC and CEO to ensure none of the posts of doctors were vacant in rural areas. They said that there should not be staff shortage in district and taluk hospitals.

They told ZE CEO Annies, Kanmani Joy, that the ZP had no powers to change the action plan of the projects to be taken up under MGNREGA.
