�Block-to-Block� prog in Meghalaya

By Staff correspondent

SHILLONG, Aug 23 - Chief Minister Conrad Sangma launched the �Block-to-Block� programme by visiting the remote and underdeveloped Jirang block on Thursday.

The State has 46 blocks and some have remained underdeveloped for long. The Chief Minister aims to visit all these blocks in the next two years.

According to Sangma, the idea of the Block-to-Block programme is to gather first-hand knowledge of schemes, challenges and development works being carried out in different blocks.

During his visit to Jirang, the Chief Minister was accompanied by local MLA Sosthenes Sohtun and Commissioner and Secretary, Community and Rural Development Department, P Sampat Kumar.

Sangma visited Nongsier and Umlakro villages under the block and reviewed implementation of various schemes like the MGNREGA, PMAY, JSA and CLLMP.

Addressing a function in one of the villages, Sangma said: �It is only by visiting the villages and speaking to villagers, the problems of the villagers and the rural areas can be understood, which will enable the Government to come out with better solutions.�

He encouraged the other legislators and officers to go to the villages, find out the problems faced by the villagers and come out with welfare schemes for the people living in the villages.

Regarding the performance of the Jirang block, Sangma admitted that implementation of various schemes in the block is not satisfactory. He added that over the last few years, schemes like the MGNREGS have not been executed properly.

The Chief Minister hoped that with the intervention of the Block Development Officer and other officials, the performance of the block in implementing development schemes would improve.

Meanwhile, Sangma chaired a meeting on Meghalaya�s Outcome Oriented Transformation in Health, Nutrition, Education and Rural Development at the Circuit House in Nongpoh.

The Chief Minister said that the programme�s objective is to improve health and nutrition of mothers and children by mobilising the entire community and using relevant data.
