Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao has reiterated that the government programmes should be implemented more effectively through the new districts, formed for decentralization of administration, better governance and for the convenience of the people.
The Chief Minister has asked the officials to study each and every family, their living standards, identify the poor among them and design exclusive programmes for their benefit.
The Chief Minister was addressing District Collectors meeting held here on Sunday at Pragathi Bhavan. Government’s Chief Advisor Rajiv Sharma, Chief Secretary SP Singh, Government Chief Whip Palla Rajeshwar Reddy, MLAs Kanakaiah, Venkateshwarlu, Principal Secretaries from various departments and other senior officials were present at the meeting.
In his inaugural address, the Chief Minister has showered praises on Collectors of the newly formed districts. “The new districts should be stabilised faster. Collectors are working well. You are visiting hospitals and hostels. You are actively working to find solutions to the problems and issues.
I am happy with your performance. I am confident that if you continue to work with the same confidence, we will achieve our goals well ahead of the schedules.
You are providing leadership at the district level. You’re an inspiration to the administration. Under your able guidance officials should work more effectively,” the CM urged the gathering.
“There is a wonderful human resource in Telangana State. Identify the human resource and encourage it. The artisans from Jangoan-Pembarthy and the filigree Artists from Karimnagar are world famous for their artistic skills. Such artistic skills are there in abundance in every region in the State. Identify and encourage them,” the CM advised.
The Chief Minister claimed that Telangana stood number one in the country by registering 19.5% growth rate. This was possible due to the uninterrupted power supply being given in the State. “We will continue this growth rate in future too.
The financial resources that are accrued should be used to develop the human resource. Study and understand the ground level situation in towns and villages and take measures to eradicate the poverty,” the Chief Minister explained.
“Our state has more rural region. Special focus should put on strengthening the rural economy. Identify human resource through Resource Mapping. There are 25 lakh Yadavs in the State. They have expertise in Sheep rearing. There is no need for them to get trained.
This is the reason why we have decided to give more encouragement to sheep breeding. It is painful that though we have 25 lakh sheep breeders, we are importing 500 truckloads of sheep from the neighbouring states. A stage should come wherein our state start exporting the sheep and this will strengthen our rural economy.
A new Sheep rearing policy should be announced in the state and the officials should get prepare for this,” the CM said. (INN)
