Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh said that I have personally visited the houses of beneficiaries to inspect the effect of government schemes, how have they reached from formulation in Secretariat to common people in ground reality and what impact has it created.
He said- during this process, we have not only met the requirement of major construction works, but have also made announcements and found ways to ensure early completion of such works through review meetings.
In today’s episode of Raman Ke Goth aired from Raipur centre of Akashwani, Dr Singh shared in detail his experiences during Lok Suraaj Abhiyan this year. Dr Singh told listeners- during the campaign, I paid surprise visits to remote villages and hamlets, and took information about the status of various public facilities.
I personally visited houses of beneficiaries. Dr Singh said-when I visited house of Khemta and Madhu Kunjam in village Bandatold of Kanker district, it felt nice to see her making silk thread. She told that construction of her pucca house is in progress under Prime Minister Housing Scheme.
I was pleased beyond extent, when Piro Bai of village Kharkatta Jashpur district expressed satisfaction on receiving LPG connection under Ujjwala yojana. Pramila Devras of Dongardola village in Dhamtari district learned the skill of stitching under Chief Minister Skill Development Scheme and now she owns two sewing machines and she’s doing well.
Dr Singh further told- Madhu Gupta of village Gadbeeda in Sarguja district told that after struggling with problem of water supply in her parents’ house for so long, when she found that the same water crisis is existent in her in-laws house as well, she was really disheartened. But Saur Sujala Yojana proved to be a boon for her and her family.
Now her family is ‘tension-free’, as good irrigation facility has given them hopes of good yield of crops and better income. DR Singh Singh told- he also got to meet a school student of village Pusalda in Raigarh district- Shobha Mahant. She openly discussed about her education and even recited multiplication table of 14. On being asked, she told that she aims to become a police officer. In another heartening incident, a visually-impaired girl expressed her ambition to become a Collector to me.
Rohini Bai of Tendubhatha village of Bemetara district told that getting her own house under Prime Minister Housing Scheme has boosted her confidence and elevated her status in society. Ishwari Bai of Doomartola village in Rajnandgaon district is indeed an example of government scheme implementation. Ishwari got cycle from Labour Department, LPG gas connection under Ujjwala Yojana, LED bulb, her husband Churendra got house under Prime Minister Housing Scheme, shop and salon kit.
Both of them are leading a happy life and focusing on providing better education to their children.
Dr Singh said- today, I do not want to talk much about major construction works and projects.
Dozens of schemes worth millions of rupees have been sanctioned during Lok Suraaj Abhiyan, which includes construction of roads, bridges, sports stadium, bus stand, market shed, school buildings, aanganbadi buildings, pond deepening, new water tanks, canal lining, water reservoir renovation, drinking water schemes etc.>
