TADEPALLI: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy expressed ire over the negligent behaviour of some officials at the division level and instructed that memos be issued to those who are not performing well. He was speaking to the District Collectors, Superintendents of Police and district officials via video conference on Tuesday in the Spandana review programme at the Camp Office. Unless officials visited the Village or Ward Secretariats four times a week and supervise at the ground level, how would they understand the problems of the people, he questioned.
There should be a 100 percent interaction with the Secretariats and stated that at the Collector and Joint Collector level the supervision was good and there would be an opportunity to correct them if mistakes were made, the Chief Minister observed. He also directed the rest of the officials to work efficiently.
YS Jagan also stated that officers should see to that a list for the social audit in DBT( Direct Benefit Transfer) schemes must be verified. Rice cards, pension cards, housing site deeds, Arogyasree schemes are the most important schemes and must be extended to the beneficiaries within the prescribed deadline. These should be monitored and reviewed periodically and if there are any errors, they must be brought to our attention, he said.
