No compromise on clean water, power supply, health services: Bawankule


Nagpur: Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule has put the district administration on notice regarding basic and other facilities being provided to the villages across the district. 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 minister was speaking at “Government at Your Doorstep” programme organized under Mohpa Nagar Parishad on Sunday (October 16). An overwhelming response was received by the programme that lasted till midnight.

Other dignitaries present on the occasion include Chief Officer Sheela Borkar, Nagar Parishad President Shamsuddin Sheikh, Vice President Madhavrao Sarjan, ZP Member Manohar Kumbhare, District BJP President Dr Rajiv Potdar, and others.

Bawankule reviewed working of evry concerned department and listened to the complaints of villagers. Irregular power supply was the main complaint to which the minister directed the authorities to ensure 24-hour power to villages and 12-hour power supply to farmers.

After reviewing water supply, Bawankule asked the officials to install ultra water filter plant for every 300 houses in each of 17 wards in Mohpa. Assign the responsibility of running the plant to Mahila Bachat Gat. Similarly, fogging should be carried once a month to eliminate mosquito menace. The fogging machine can be purchased by Nagar Panchayats from 14th Finance Commission funds.

The Guardian Minister received a demand from villagers to upgrade Mohpa Primary Health Centre. He approved the demand and directed the CEO to take rounds of every ward and ensure cleanliness.

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.

Reviewing the education scenario, Bawankule asked the Nagar Parishad to digitize the only one school the local body has. The students should be provided Internet connections to linking them to entire world.

“Now, APL cards are being issued to everyone. There would be no scope for corruption in the new system. Similarly, the BPL criteria/condition has been removed for availing Gharkul Scheme benefit,” Bawankule asserted.
