Hyderabad, February 6
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was happy with the working of district collectors.
He said the government would allocate Rs 5 crore to each district collector as a contingency fund. The Collectors should use this money to solve the issues and problems brought to their notice from time to time.
The Collectors have been told to take particular care of orphans in their jurisdiction and provide them with good education, accommodation and launch exclusive schools for them. Referring to the recently-announced policy of giving pension for single women, he asked the Collectors to identify single women in villages and offer them protection. He also told them to complete office buildings’ construction within this year.
The Chief Minister said that since the size of a district has become smaller, the Collectors should organise ‘Mana Vooru-Mana Pranalika’ (Our Village-Our Plan) once again and collect data regarding living conditions of the people in the villages.
KCR said that the State has abundant human resources and should use them in the right way. The State is leading in the country with 19.5 per cent development rate and suggested the officials to work with the same spirit.
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 where the state would start exporting the sheep. This will strengthen our rural economy, the CM said.
He suggested to take up fish breeding on a large scale since all tanks and ponds in the State are brimming with water due to Mission Kakatiya.
He suggested the collectors to get to know the problems of dalits and STs during their visits to thandas. The district collectors were told to use the Central government schemes and to take up job fillings on humanitarian grounds. KCR also suggested to ensure that both wife and husband work at same place and to drop retired officials to their homes by government vehicles.
Directing the district officials to stop gudumba in villages, the CM told them to provide alternate employment opportunities to gudumba traders.
