Adityanath’s instructions came during a meeting with officials of the rural development department late on Saturday night.

“Efforts should be made to ensure that a biometric system of attendance is installed upto the block level. Apart from this, a board be put up at every village panchayat, which will have information about contact details of the village pradhan and details of the ongoing works,” Adityanath said as per an official statement. The chief minister said that the targets of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana should be achieved.

All the works pertaining to registration, uploading of photographs and approval of housing units for 5.73 lakh families eligible under this scheme must be completed at the earliest. “The Centre will be requested to incorporate eligible families, which have been left out,” he said.

Emphasising on transparency in the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee scheme (MNREGS), Adityanath said that active workers should be linked with Aadhaar-based payment system.The Chief Minister also sought information about the National Rural Drinking Water Programme, World Bank-aided ‘Neer Nirmal’ and Rajya Grameen Payjal Yojana among other schemes.

“Apart from Bundelkhand, piped water supply schemes should be implemented in other parts of the state. To address the problems of drinking water scarcity in Bundelkhand, repair works pertaining to hand-pumps along with re-boring should be done,” Adityanath said. He also said that 160 piped water supply schemes in 31 districts should be completed to ensure water supply.

    1. Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath has made a good beginning. Top bureaucracy would now be aware of his priorities. But the chief minister should leave matters like enforcing office discipline to bureaucrats who of course must themselves be ready to be disciplined. 2. It will be worth watching whether the chief minister spends his time and energy for improving lives of millions of UP’s poor Hindus and Muslims? 3. With a huge majority in the embly and NDA government in the Centre, one can say that environment is a very favourable environment for UP to make rapid progress in the next decade. 4. What are many problems faced by UP, the biggest state (in terms of po tion) in India? Here is a small list: (a) Poverty and poor industrial development; (b) Low literacy rate; (c) Dominance of caste politics; (d) Migration of unskilled and semi-skilled youth of UP to other states- this means that UP does not utilise its huge human resources for its own development.
