Uncertainty over East-West Corridor, hints Rockybul

By Correspondent

SILCHAR, Nov 24 � The East-West Corridor which will connect Silchar to Saurashtra is already under a huge spot of bother. And if Forest and Environment and Panchayat and Rural Development Minister Rockybul Hussain is to be believed, the National Board for Wildlife in India might turn down the clearance proposal needed for completion of the project.

Rockybul Hussain, who was in the valley to understand the problems and progress of various works of Panchayat and Rural development in the area, while replying to a question, said that the State Government has already given its NOC in the context of forest land area and the ball is in the court of the autonomous body. In his words, the National Board for Wildlife in India has rejected many schemes and projects of the government, meaning that the long pending project might also be ticked off.

While addressing the media at the conference hall of the Deputy Commissioner�s office here, the minister said that he has had discussions on the proper implementation of the various schemes meant for Panchayat and Rural development. More than three crore people are living in rural Assam across the 2,022 panchayats and putting smiles in their faces by utilising the schemes will help the state prosper, he asserted.

The minister expressed disappointment that the utilisation of the panchayat and rural development schemes has not been up to the mark. Interestingly, Hussain kept repeating, �Please make positive coverage of the developments� during the course of his media interaction.

He informed that efforts will be made to utilise Rs 15-20 crore under the MNREGA schemes across all the blocks in Cachar district and has asked Deputy Commissioner GM Hazarika to look into the proceedings with all the block development officers. �Do not worry about money, but make sure the work gets done within two months,� the minister told the officials.

Further Hussain said that the Indira Awas Yojna homes for the year 2011-12 and 2012-13 have to be completed by one month and that the panchayat and rural development department will send observers to monitor the development.

Asked what the government is doing in the multi-crore Cachar Zila Parishad scam, Hussain said that appropriate action will be taken against the accused CEO and soon a new CEO will be appointed as well.
