Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir recently stressed on village institutions to be strengthened for better coordination on the ground.
He enjoined upon the District Administration to work in close coordination with them so that the requisite flow of information from villages is prompt and hassle free. He suggested they create a WhatsApp group of all of these basic field workers so that they are able to bring their suggestions/grievances directly to the administration.
Putting emphasis on the cleanliness of all villages, he enquired from DCs about the measures taken by them to ensure door to door collection of waste and removal of legacy waste in each of them. He said that each village should look substantially cleaner than before. He told them to include the locals and PRI’s in these activities for their sustainability for a long time. He stated that keeping both our houses and surroundings clean should be our way of life.
He observed that peace is priority over all other things as it ensures safety of lives and livelihoods of people. He made out that it has more stakeholders and guarantees better dividends for everyone. He asked them to give it more consideration and make it a daily affair for the benefit of every citizen of the UT. He remarked that being One Nation, One People, every citizen has a role to play. He advised them to adopt a whole of society approach by making the task all inclusive and effective.
