HYDERABAD: Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has asked the collectors to come up with yearly and five-year green plans for villages. He said Rs 2 crore each would be kept with collectors for taking up emergency works in the villages.
While stressing on Haritha Haram programme, the chief minister asked the collectors to focus on Karimnagar, Jangaon, Yadadri, Suryapet , Warangal , Gadwal and Narayanpet districts where the green cover is less when compared to other districts.
The chief minister held the meeting with collectors, district panchayat officers and others along with ministers on the 30-day action plan ‘Palle Pragati’ programme, which was conducted between September 6 and October 5 on electricity and sanitation in the villages.
KCR complimented the officials for conducting the 30-day action plan successfully and praised the power utilities, which stood first in resolving grievances during electricity week. He congratulated Genco and Transco chairman and managing director and discom heads.
While announcing that similar programme would be taken up in future too, KCR said Rs 339 crore central funds would be released to villages every month. “Every gram panchayat should buy a tractor-cum-tanker for watering the plants. Plant nurseries should be organised in every village and fencing for protection of plants,” he said. The chief minister announced setting up of a three-member committee with IAS officers Somesh Kumar, Raghunandan Rao and Ajay Mishra to provide three-phase power in tribal villages and hamlets.
