Weather war: MP CM asks collectors to report damage

Bhopal, Sep 11 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Wednesday directed collectors to make a preliminary assessment of life and crop loss due to heavy precipitation – so that compensation could be disbursed without delay – besides estimating fertiliser requirement for rabi crops, official sources said.
Deliberating with bureaucrats through videoconferencing under the Jan Adhikar programme at Mantralaya, he asked them to dispatch a precursory report on agrarian debt waiver which is a separate challenge in every district. Issuing instructions to pay special attention to complaints vis-a-vis electricity bills, the Chief Minister averred, “Grievances of commoner consumers relate to excessive billing. Such cases should be resolved on priority basis in the Aapki Sarkar-Aapke Dwar drive. Create an atmosphere of accountability in districts.”

He called for immediate review of cases rejected for technical reasons under the Forest Rights Act and addressing the matters with a positive attitude.

“Eligible families must not be deprived of lease deeds. Collectors could also rectify technical deficiencies on their own. Accountability of functionaries will be fixed in instances of rejection on technical grounds. It is better to assist tribal families on their own wisdom instead of forcing them to bring evidence, so that resolution takes place in positive manner,” Mr Nath observed.

He ordered commencement of road repair as soon as the monsoon is over and completion of the work by November 20.
“Encourage those interested in establishing and managing gaushalas. Such people are coming forward in all districts. Move ahead and help them. Make a list of officers who performed incompetently and did not resolve plaints satisfactorily on the CM Helpline 181,” the Chief Minister said.
Mr Nath tackled several cases. He directed making a list of suitable people not included on the Below Poverty Line list besides identifying ineligible persons who are on it.
