DM PULLS UP OFFICERS FOR NOT VISITING VILLAGES UNDER SARKAR JANTA KE DWAR
Sunday, 01 July 2018 | PNS | PAURI —
Despite the instruction of the State Government to the officers of departments to stay one night in the villages under their jurisdiction and to address the grievances of the villagers under Sarkar Janta Ke Dwar, a few officers acted on the order. The matter came to light when the District Magistrate Sushil Kumar was monitoring things at a meeting in Pauri. He sounded angry and warned that such negligence of duty would not be brooked by the district administration. He, further, said that strict action would be taken against the officers concerned for their laid-back attitude towards the execution of an important Government scheme.
DM said that out of the 61 officers of the different departments, just 16 of them had visited villages under the programme. “As per my information, 36 complaints have been received so far by different departments and 32 of them have been sent to the officers concerned to be addressed. This is much below the expected figures. We have taken a serious note of the matter,” he said. The nodal officer of the programme, M M Khan who is also the district Panchayat Raj officer informed the meeting that there are 536 pending complaints in the district. DM said that things were in very bad shape in some areas like Pauri, Khirsu, Paubo, Satpuli and Kotdwar and asked the officers concerned to execute the Sarkar Janta Ke Dwar in the right manner by staying in the villages and understanding the problems the villagers are facing. “We would take stern action if the officers fail in their duties,” he said.
The DM, further, instructed BSNL to connect the remote villages in the district with the BSNL network through the GPO. He also urged the officers concerned to open CHCs in the areas where there is no such health facilities till date. Among the officers present at the monitoring meeting was the district development officer Ved Prakash.
