Law and order priority: KCR
Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao today directed the District Collectors to accord paramount priority to law and order in the state to achieve rapid growth and speedy development.
Addressing a two-day Collectors’ conference here, the Chief Minister remarked that the state cannot usher in an era of development without peace, law and order. The Collectors and SPs have to play a key role in ensuring law and order to bring down crime rate and ensure prevalence of the peace in the state. Telangana underwent a dreaded situation of Naxalites hazard coupled with Armed Struggle, KCR said, adding that the statehood has been achieved after a protracted struggle and the government aims to cater to the needs and live up to expectations of the people.
KCR said that the state government will work on time bound action plans to live up to the expectations of the people. The TRS came to power with people’s blessings and the government will take this opportunity as great responsibility to cater to their needs, he said. He addedthat the police and district administration should win the hearts of the people and enable them to live in peaceful conditions with communal amity and brotherhood. The Government can reach out to the people only when the collectors deliver the goods in coordination with all other departments including police, KCR averred.
Use 10 crores to address immediate needs: CM
Setting aside 10 crore rupees funds with collectors to address immediate needs of the people in every district, Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao today directed the former to act swiftly, focus on cleanliness by providing dustbins to every household and set up a separate dumping yard at every village.
The Chief Minister, while giving directions to the district officials at a two-day collectors conference, asked the officials to make use of the funds so as to address the needs of the people. The collectors should make use of funds to allot 12,000 rupees for construction of a toilet in every house and 65,000 rupees towards community toilets and immediate steps to provide better roads.
KCR also added that rural banks which were shifted to towns should be brought back. He directed them to remove fake ration-card holders and pensioners as Aasara scheme and food security cards are aimed at helping the deserving poor. Since the population in towns will be reaching 50 percent soon from current 41 percent, steps should be taken to cater to the future needs. He also asked them to set up Rythu bazaars, parks, market yards, burial grounds, dumping yards and other amenities.
Taking a dig at the previous government for neglecting the welfare of the people through meager allocation of 8,700 crore rupees, the chief minister said that the TRS Government is spending 27,000 crore rupees for welfare of the people. Every rupee of the scheme should transparently reach out to the un-reached and the deprived classes, he directed. The Collectors should look into drinking water grid works and take the responsibility to implement the welfare schemes cent percent and help people get benefits, he said.
He interacted with colleagues, MLAs, Collectors, JCs and SPs on Aasara pensions, Swatch Telangana on line with Swatch Bharath.
