HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has decided to implement a 30-day action plan for villages, instead of the proposed 60-day action plan. The 30-day action plan will be implemented from September 6 with an aim to improve the living conditions in villages. The government will convene a meeting on September 3 in the city to guide the officials on the programme. The CM himself will guide the officials.

The chief minister held a meeting with Panchayt Raj officials at Pragathi Bhavan on Friday on the implementation of the action plan for the villages. In the seven-hour-long meeting, Rao took a decision to increase the wages of the around 36,000 safai karmcharis working in the villages toRs 8,500 per month.

Once, the Collectors submit their suggestions, the State government would prepare the guidelines.  The CM said that the government’s aim is to see green and hygienic villages. 

“The development in the villages should be taken up in a planned manner. We have to change the face of the villages with the cooperation of the people,” he said. The 30-day action plan is intended for the same, the CM said. Though the government planned to implement a 60-day action plan, it was reduced to 30-days as per the suggestions made by the senior officials. 

ACTION PLAN

Plans will be prepared to fulfil the needs of the villages; five-year plans will also be prepared; debris to be removed, low lying areas and unused open wells to be filled up, drains to be cleared, shandies and markets to be beautified, preparations will be made for Haritha Haram-The hanging power lines and curved electric poles to be replaced
