ITANAGAR: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu Wednesday chaired the first monthly monitoring meeting - 'Arunachal e-Pragati', through virtual conference with the Deputy Commissioners (DCs) and field officers concerned.
Arunachal e-Pragati is a novel concept that will enable the chief minister to personally monitor progress of important projects and schemes of both the State and Central governments.
The DCs and field officers concerned would be directly answerable to the Chief Minister Office (CMO) regarding the progress of all projects and schemes that will be flagged off by CMO in advance.
In the first meeting, Khandu sought latest updates on the Joram-Koloriang part of the Trans-Arunachal Highway, which he said is not satisfactory. He called for monthly progress report and joint inspection by concerned authorities.
He also flagged off construction work of the Miao-Vijaynagar Road in Changlang district and sought its early completion saying that the Governor's Office is monitoring the project and no inordinate delay in completion would be tolerated.
"Please remember that 'Arunachal e-Pragati' is not a review meeting. This is a monitoring meeting and all concerned officers, including those executing Central projects will be answerable.
''Therefore, your personal involvement in execution and monitoring is needed," asserted Khandu.
The CM took serious note of non-performing districts, particularly in PMGSY and Jal Jeevan Mission.
