Chief Executive Officer of the Zilla Panchayat, N Shanthappa, on
Tuesday expressed his disappointment about the ineff- ective
utilisation of funds released for providing basic amenities at the Sch
eduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes colonies in the district.
Participating in the progress review meeting organised at the ZP
office, the Chief Executive Officer took the district social welfare
officer, Siddaraju, to task. "The funds allocated for developing basic
amenities in these colonies have been released completely. But
officials have not utilised the funds."
He instructed all the assistant executive engineers in the taluk and
the TP CEO to submit a report on the funds released and a plan of
action to utilise them.
Miffed by absentees
The absence of the district officer for the Ambedkar Abhivrudhi Nigam
at the meeting angered Shanthappa, who recalled that the officer did
not attend the district monitoring cell.
"He is intentionally missing all the meetings. Union Minister K H
Muniyappa wants to increase the grants allocated to the Board, but the
officer is not available for discussions," he said.
He added that the officer had failed to provide any information to the
district in-charge minister about the projects undertaken by the
"Since the district in-charge minister is also the social welfare
minister of the State, it would be wise to take his support and ensure
that all the projects are implemented in the district," he advised.
Priority to water
Shanthappa also pointed taht the backwardclass welfare department had
also failed to utilise the grants allocated to them.
"There is a massive scarcity of water in the district," Shanthappa
said and advised Bescom officers to give priority to supply of
drinking water while supplying electricity to borewells. He also asked
them to organise an interaction with beneficiaries of Ganga Kalyana
The officers and other staff introduced themselves to the newly
elected ZP president and vice-president.
ZP president Manjula, vice-president G Somashekar, Chief Accountants
Officer Ganganna, Planning Officer Lakshminarayan and others were
present on the occasion.
