LUCKNOW || Spelling out development as the top priority of his government, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed to expedite and finish all developmental and public welfare projects within stipulated timeline, an official said. All necessary sanctions of various projects should be obtained on time to avoid delay as it leads to cost escalation, he pointed out.
The CM on Thursday reviewed projects worth over Rs 50 crore and other developmental projects of Ayodhya division through video conferencing. Assuring that the developmental projects will not suffer due to want of funds from the government, he laid emphasis on timely completion of these works while adhering to prescribed quality norms.
He made it clear that it is not possible for public representatives to reach every spot for quality check hence the district administration should function as the nodal officers and work in tandem with the people's representative to ensure logical culmination of the developmental works. The involvement of people's representative makes the speed of the works double. They should send the proposals of new projects to the government as early as possible.
He warned the officials that there shall be no compromise on the quality and timeline of the projects. The designated nodal officers should go and do physical verification of the development works and if it found lacking the working agency should be held responsible and liable to be punished.
The Chief Minister said that the Ram temple in Ayodhya will open new vistas of tourism which holds a great potential in Ayodhya division in the near future. "It is quite pertinent to develop infrastructural facilities for subsequent growth of tourism which in turn will generate lots of employment as well,'' he said.
While directing to expedite construction of community toilets and gram panchayat buildings, he asked to digitalise all the village secretariats and link them with public address systems. He also instructed to enhance the BS Sakhi facilities in the villages.
He said the One District One Product (ODOP) scheme has an immense potential to give boost to economic activities and these products of respective districts should be displayed at the Vikas Bhawan. The CM said that the conditions in animal shelters should be improved.
He warned officials against any laxity and against any files being stuck up without reason and said no file should remain pending at the district level for more than seven days.In case of delay of developmental projects proposals, the concerned Principal Secretary will have to inform the Chief Secretary and the even the delay at that level will invite intervention of the Chief Minister Office.
He said the land disputes should be disposed of promptly as the land requirement is a prerequisite for developmental projects and told the district officials to encourage the youth for start ups. They should be facilitated to take bank loans for the start ups. He also expected the district officials should help out the investors who do not have to face any problems. He also directed to ensure action against those who are involved in black marketing of fertilizer.
