Mamata asks supervisors to pull up their socks
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said supervisors who failed to implement the 100- day work scheme would be transferred.
The CM was holding the administrative review meeting of the district here on Friday afternoon. She expressed concern over the delay in completing projects under the 100-day work scheme.
Expressing dissatisfaction she asked district administration to identify idle supervisors and transfer them accordingly. She instructed the district administration to complete all ongoing projects by Durga puja. " Identify supervisors who failed to deliver and them transfer them to expedite completion of projects," she directed.
Basudeb Bandyopadhyay, chief secretary, Malay De, home secretary and Surajit Kar Purakayastha, director general of police along with all additional chief secretaries, principal secretaries and secretaries were present at the meeting. District officials up to the rank of Block Development Officer attended. The chief minister said that in the future 50 students would be allowed to see the proceedings of the meetings to create an awareness about public administration.
Banerjee said though the gram sabhas were directly getting money to carry out rural development work, block development officers who are nodal officers for these projects should keep the Panchayat Samiti in the loop. " The cooperation will help complete projects on time," she said adding " All projects will have to be completed before the Pujas." The CM instructed the district administration to complete Bangla Gram Sadak Yojna within the next six months along with the Bangla Aabash Yojna. Banerjee urged the district administration to engage youths to maintain water bodies.
Banerjee said a week-long programme will be held between May 20 to 27 to highlight various projects taken up by the state government over the years. Exhibitions will be held at the block level to create awareness among people. Banerjee said the Public Health Engineering department had taken up 49 projects in the district of which 20 were completed in 2016-17, while the remaining ones would be completed in 2017-18 at an estimated cost of Rs 133.89 crore.
She announced that the Duttafulia hospital would be upgraded and expressed satisfaction over the district's performance in institutional delivery.
