CM asks ministers to review schemes in the onward journey and interact with beneficiaries on their way back
GUWAHATI: In sync with the killing of two birds with one stone policy, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma decided to hold the Cabinet meeting in a district headquarters once a month. The state Cabinet will hold its next meeting at Dhemaji on September 30.
The Chief Minister has asked ministers to review the progress of various government schemes in their onward journey for Cabinet meetings. He also asked the ministers to interact with beneficiaries of various government schemes on their way back from Cabinet meetings.
The Chief Minister has already allocated districts and schemes that the ministers will review in their onward. He also identified the government schemes the beneficiaries of which the minsters will interact in their return journeys.
The ministers will review Anganwadi centres, hospitals including PHCs (primary health centres) and CHCs (community health centres), JJM (Jal Jeevan Mission), LP Schools, one Covid vaccine centre and any other issues in their onward journey for Cabinet meetings.
On their way back from Cabinet meetings, the ministers will interact with an Arunodoi beneficiary, a widow pension holder, an old-age pension holder, a beneficiary each of the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana and Atal Amrit Abhiyan, and a beneficiary of Covid Victims' Relief Scheme.
In the last five-year term of the Sarbananda Sonowal-led BJP government at Dispur, only one Cabinet meeting took place outside Dispur. That Cabinet meeting was in Majuli.
