Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today exhorted district Collectors to remain focused on effective implementation of government programmes. He asked the officials to study each and every family, their living standards, identify the poor among them and design exclusive programmes for their benefit. Rao, who spoke at a conference of district Collectors, said new districts have been formed for decentralisation of administration, better governance and public convenience, according to a release from his office.
The number of districts in the state has been increased from 10 to 31 in recent re-organisation. “The new districts should be stabilised faster. Collectors are working well. You are visiting hospitals and hostels. You are actively working to find solutions to the problems and issues. I am happy with your performance. “I am confident that if you continue to work with the same confidence, we will achieve our goals well ahead of the schedules,” he said. The state should register a high growth rate, Rao said. “Telangana state stood number one in the country by registering 19.5 per cent growth rate. This is possible due to the uninterrupted power supply being given in the state. We will continue this growth rate in future too. The financial resources that are accrued should be used to develop the human resource.
“Study and understand the ground level situation in towns and villages and take measures to eradicate poverty,” the release quoted him as saying. He spoke at length on the implementation of programmes and schemes and gave directives to the officials.
