Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb today took strong exception to the way of functioning of TSECL and other line departments and instructed the departmental heads of Dharmanagar subdivision to ensure necessary measures of improvement at the earliest.
The chief Minister chairing a slew of review meetings today at Dharmanagar Circuit House in presence of officials from Electricity department, PWD and DWS, instructed the officials to be efficient with their duties. Chief Secretary and principal secretary (PWD) also accompanied him in the meetings.
During the review meeting with TSECL officials, he directed the officers to ensure uninterrupted and smooth electric supply to each and every household. “In spite of being a power surplus state why the people of the state are not getting uninterrupted electric supply” the Chief Minister wondered.
He also assured that to solve the problem related to electricity such as pole breakdowns, technical snags in the transmitters and frequent shut downs experts would be hired from outside states, if necessary.
On the issues of technical faults appear in new transmitters, he strongly directed, “The suppliers of transformers will be entrusted to fix the technical problems emerge during guarantee period of the transmitters. If the suppliers hesitate to fix the problems strong actions should be taken.”
In the PWD meeting, he said, the ongoing road constructions should follow the scientific way of making. On each of the sides, proper drainage routes should be developed to avoid the damages caused by rain and there should be proper coating. He also urged the officials to be generous about the public convenience and carry out maintenance works in regular intervals. He also said that the government departments are capable of carrying out all the construction works and the government would not give any further contracts to NBCC and HSCL.
Moreover, the Chief Minister also stressed on the mutual co-ordination of line department like DWS, Forest and Rural Development for speedy implementation of government welfare projects. Issues such as rain water harvesting, building of check dams, and sanitation were also discussed during the meetings.
