Wednesday, 12 June 2019 | Staff Reporter | ATAL NAGAR

nAsserting that providing employment to local youth is a must for tackling Naxal menace, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Tuesday instructed that road construction work in Maoist affected areas, including Bastar, should be assigned to them.

In a review meeting of the Public Works Department, held here at Mahanadi Bhawan on Tuesday, CM instructed for dividing road construction works in Bastar region in small parts so as to provide the contract to local youth.

Group of youths could also be assigned the job if the works are big, he said. The patch work and maintenance work should also be assigned to them, he added.

By doing so the youth will become self employed and will join the mainstream, the CM said.

To implement this, the CM instructed the concerned officials to make necessary amendments in the present rules and regulations for construction works.

CM also exhorted that no compromise should be made in maintaining quality of construction works and it should also be ensured that the work is completed within stipulated time frame.
