Keep villages clean and be healthy, Bawankule tells villagers

Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule on Friday said that the State Government is following “zero tolerance” policy when it comes to providing health services to villagers, cleanliness, fogging and filtered water supply. “If the villages are kept clean, health of villagers will be fine,” he said.

The Minister was interacting with officials of all departments and villagers after spending a day in Yenva village of Katol Tehsil in Nagpur District. The review meeting was also attended by Katol MLA Ashish Deshmukh, Dr Rajiv Potdar, Kishore Revatkar, Sandeep Sarode, ZP Education Committee Chairman Ukesh Chavan, BJP President Dilip Thakre, Sarpanch Thakre, and others.

During his stay in Yenva village, Bawankule inspected wells and directed the officials to get rid of garbage in the water bodies. He also interacted with school students despite being Diwali holidays. Filth and waste littered at many places left the minister livid and he directed his anger towards concerned authorities. The officials were also directed to utilize funds provided by 14th Finace Commission for installing water filters at water supply points.

The minister expressed his satisfaction over the working of Primary Health Centre. The review meeting was held at ZP High School where a large number of villagers gathered and interacted with the minister. The working of Mahavitaran (MSEDCL) came under scanner as most of the villagers voiced their concern over haphazard power supply. The minister found that not a single employee of the power supply company right from lineman to branch engineer was staying in headquarters despite frequent directives by the Energy Minister as well as Chief Minister. Bawankule warned of severe action in this regard.

Bawankule has firmly said that there would not be any compromise over supply of filtered water, health services, fogging operation once a month, cleanliness, 24-hour electricity to villages and 12-hour power to farmers.

The Land Survey office was directed to deliver 7/12 certificates to farmers at their houses free of cost by December end. Similarly, students should be issued caste and domicile certificates at their schools. Entire records should be computerized, Bawankule directed.
