Shimla, January 18

Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur today directed officials to ensure the completion of the detailed project reports (DPRs) of various development projects in a time-bound manner.

Thakur presided over a meeting with the MLAs of Kangra, Kinnaur, Chamba, Shimla and Lahaul Spiti districts for the finalisation of priorities for the budget for financial year 2022-23 here.

He directed officers to address different issues taken up by the public representatives, besides considering their suggestions on priority.

Thakur said that this meeting was of utmost importance as the MLAs get an opportunity to prioritise their plans and also give their valuable suggestions for the preparation of the budget. “In the past four years, we have ensured that every area of the state and every section of society gets the benefit of welfare and development schemes,” he said.

He said that despite the pandemic, the government had laid special focus on strengthening health infrastructure. Several schemes had been initiated to ensure that poor people were not deprived of better heath care for want of funds.

Deputy Chairman, State Planning Board, Ramesh Chand Dhawala urged the Chief Minister to open a sub depot of the HRTC at Jawalamukhi.

Kinnaur MLA Jagat Singh Negi said that adequate budget provision must be made for the development of tribal areas. He stressed the need for doing away with the single line administration for tribal areas as decentralisation of power was essential for better governance. He urged the Chief Minister not to allow transfer of funds meant for development of tribal areas to the non-tribal areas.
