Khammam: It is the responsibility of the government officials to successfully implement the welfare schemes and developmental activities introduced by the Central and State governments, said District Collector D S Lokesh Kumar.
Speaking in a meeting organised on the occasion of 11th Civil Services Day here at Technical Training and Development Centre (TTDC) in Khammam on Friday, the Collector said each and every government employee and official would become successful only when he faces all the problems and addresses them during his service efficiently.
“Getting a government job is a great thing, but it will be meaningful only when the officials are always available to common people and solve their problems,” said the Collector. “The Civil Service officials must play a key role in leading all sections of people in the path of development by utilising all the resources which are available apart from striving hard to uplift the weaker sections, suggested the Collector.
“Enormous changes are taking place in modern science and technological fields. By understanding and learning new modern technology, the Civil Service officials must improve their professional skills for successful implementation of various welfare schemes and developmental activities introduced by Central and State governments with the coordination of the officials of various departments following the rules and regulations, advised the Collector.
