Senior administrative officials from all the four districts of Purulia, Bankura, Birbhum and West Midnapore will attend the meeting and they will give a detailed account about the status of the various projects that have been undertaken by various departments in the four districts.
Banerjee said that in Friday’s meeting his department would review the status of various schemes that had been started in the districts of Jangalmahal. The District Magistrates will be asked how they were implementing the new projects and what steps were taken to ensure that all the people can get the services under various schemes taken up by the government.
It may be mentioned that after coming to power in 2011, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee started various schemes and projects that immensely benefitted various sections of society. It was Banerjee who introduced Khadya Sathi scheme under which the people in the Jangalmahal areas are getting rice at Rs 2 per kg. The poor people in the areas were mostly benefitted under this scheme. The socio-economic condition of people was completely changed through Kanyashree, Yuvoshree, Sabuj Sathi and various other projects. New hospitals and training institutes have come up in various parts.
Banerjee has restored the peace in the Jangalmahal which had been missing for many years. Many of those who were involved in extremist activities returned to the main stream of life and got the benefits of various schemes and financial aids.
Programme implementation department is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that all the projects are properly implemented so that the people especially in the backward areas can get benefits of various schemes.
“We are holding time to time review meeting to take stock of the ongoing projects in the four different districts of Jangalmahal. Our main purpose is to ensure that all the people from these districts get the benefits of bunch of projects introduced by our Chief Minister. Our department will examine how the projects were implemented at tomorrow’s (Friday) meeting,” said Ashish Banerjee.
He also said that the ministers from all the four districts have also been requested to attend the review meeting on Friday.
