CHENNAI: Stoutly denying the charge of the opposition that the State government had failed to implement the schemes announced by former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa under Rule 110 in the State Assembly, Chief Minister O Panneerselvam on Thursday gave a detailed account of their status.

Replying to a special mention in this regard during zero hour, he said during the Lok Sabha elections, DMK treasurer M K Stalin levelled the same charge and the former Chief Minister had countered it saying that of the 430 schemes announced by her, GOs were issued for 424. Since Stalin continued to harp on it, he was forced to give a detailed reply.

Panneerselvam said during 2011-12, the former Chief Minister had announced 51 schemes under Rule 110 and GOs were issued for all of them. Of these, 39 schemes have been completed, while 11 are under implementation. One scheme could not be taken up.

During 2012-13, 87 schemes were announced and GOs were issued for 83. While 48 of them have been completed, work on 34 was in progress. One scheme could not be taken up due to litigation. During 2013-14,  292 schemes were announced and GOs issued for 287. While 126 of them have been completed, work on 161 was in progress. While GOs are yet to be issued for four schemes, one scheme is awaiting Centre’s approval.

For the current year, Jayalalithaa had announced 236 schemes under Rule 110.

Of this, GOs have been

issued for 116 schemes. While five schemes have been completed, 111 were in progress. GOs for 117 schemes are yet to be issued while three were awaiting approval from the Centre. The Chief Minister gave a detailed account on the number of schemes implemented in each department and highlighted the key schemes among them in his reply.
