The first day of the Collectors' meeting held at Pragati Bhavan proved to be a marathon one as it lasted more than eight hours. Collectors of 33 districts were told to focus on flagship schemes and other welfare programmes of the government and ensure fruits of the scheme reach the last man in the queue.
KCR stressed on giving a big makeover to all villages with full-fledged facilities at the same time ensuring green and clean environment. The Collectors were asked to take responsibility of implementation of schemes so as turn villages and towns green through the 60-day Action Plan.
The Chief Minister said to have asked the district administration to focus on green expansion across the state. "Our motto is to get ample water from rivers and ensure that farm production rise in future.
Our aim is to see that every person gets benefited through our flagship programmes, welfare schemes, development programmes and irrigation projects," KCR is understood to have stressed.
Touching on the key irrigation sector, the CM said that bringing one crore acre of land under irrigation is the target of his government. He pointed out that Kaleshwaram project was completed in a record three years' time and with the same spirit Palamur Ranga Reddy and Sitharama projects will be completed.
Mission Kakatiya, Mission Bhagiratha and the various welfare schemes are proving to be of big help to people. Coordinate with sub-ordinate staff from all departments in districts to achieve all-round development, KCR told the Collectors.
