Stressing on effective implementation of government schemes, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that laxity of officers led to bleeding of government funds and deprived the beneficiaries of the benefits.
Yogi said a team of 45 officers would carry out inspections across the state between June 15 and 20.
Addressing officials at a review meeting in Lucknow on Wednesday, Yogi said that it was the responsibility of officers to implement projects and schemes in letter and in spirit, and for this they need to be on their toes.
“Officials should carry out surprise physical inspections of projects and if some officer says that he/she cannot do it, then it should be reported so that the officer concerned is not given field posting in future,” he said.
“Resolution of people’s problems is the top priority of this government. District magistrates should regularly meet people between 9 am and 10 am every day and resolve their problems ,” Yogi said, and asked the officials to ensure transparency in work so that people could know who was the beneficiary of government schemes and who was next in line.
The Chief Minister declared that a team comprising 45 senior IAS officers had been set up and it would inspect development schemes between June 15 and 20.
From June 21, the Chief Minister will himself start surprise inspections at divisional level.
Yogi said that all officers, be it district magistrate, district police chief, block development officer or tehsildar, should stay at night in their area of operation so that they were available to the masses.
“If there is no government accommodation, these officials should stay on rented houses,” he said.
During his address, the Chief Minister touched upon all important government schemes and set deadlines for their completion. He said that all municipalities of the state be declared Open Defection Free (ODF) by June 30 and beneficiaries under Swachh Bharat Mission should get toilets by July 15.
Yogi instructed that the ‘School Chalo Abhiyan’ be carried out between July 1 and 15 to increase attendance in schools and all drain pipes in municipal areas be desilted by June 30. Directives were also issued for completion of construction of houses under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and cow sheds.
“Aayushman Bharat is an ambitious project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and its implementation should be completed within the stipulated time during which beneficiaries should get golden card,” the Chief Minister said.
Yogi also directed officials to clear the arrears of cane growers and asked them to link mandis to e-nam (national Agriculture Market) portal.
To stop operation of middlemen, Yogi said that CCTVs be installed at Mandi Parishads. He also asked officials to identify vendor zones.
