Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that the state government is committed to make permanent solutions to the problems of water and migration by making immediate and long-term plans. Chouhan was reviewing development activities, public welfare schemes and law and order situation in Tikamgarh district at 6.30 am on Thursday.
A permanent solution to the problem of water can be found by raising the ground water level with the implementation of activities being carried out under Amrit Sarovar, Jalabhishek Abhiyan.
By activating women self-help groups in the livelihood mission, connecting them with self-employment will prove to be effective in controlling migration, said CM.
CM reviewed the innovation, drinking water supply status, ration distribution, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, operation of Anganwadis, Amrit Sarovar Yojana and law and order situation in the district.
It was said that water is being provided in urban areas on alternate days in some places and with a gap of two days in some other places. Necessary arrangements for drinking water have been made in rural areas.
He said that the payment to the contractors should be made only after they fill the roads dug for laying the pipeline.
Chouhan expressed displeasure over only 23 per cent work being done in urban housing under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. He congratulated the district officials on the completion of 92% work under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Rural).
