Under the new Act, nurseries should be set up in every municipality and village panchayats. This is also the responsibility of the village secretary.
Maintain Nurseries with the help of Forest Range Officers. We have set aside Rs 2500 Crore in the Budget for the local bodies. Even a small village will get Rs 3 lakh funds. Major villages will get up to Rs 25 Lakh. Besides this, funds will come from the taxes and Finance Commission of Government of India. Take up local works with these funds,” the CM said.
“To conduct eye tests for the people and offer medical care to the needy, organize government’s ‘Kanti Velugu’ programme in the last week of next month. Prepare an action plan to organise Eye camps in every village in every slum in the cities. Appoint an Eye camp team in every mandal. Make arrangements for the team to conduct the programme.
Decide how many days a camp should be organized in a village and inform the same to people. Create awareness among the people that everyone should go for the eye test. For those requiring surgeries, refer them to the 300 Eye hospitals both in the public and private sector in the State.
Preliminary study pointed out that 41 Lakh people require spectacles. Keep the stock of spectacles ready. Make donors, NGOs, teachers, students, women groups as stakeholders in the programme,” the CM said.
