Chandigarh: The Punjab Government has decided to organise ‘Pind Sarkar Milni’ to give boost to development works in villages.
Chairing a meeting at his office in the Punjab Civil Secretariat, Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh said these ‘milnis’ will be organised at district headquarters in the state.
He said during these milnis, the panchayats will apprise the officers of development works that are needed to start in their villages.
The Chief Minister asked the Rural Development and Panchayat Department to make elaborate arrangements for making the event a success.
The Chief Minister said that these ‘milnis’ will be organised twice a week in the Malwa region and once in a week in Doaba and Majha regions.
He further added that this will help in resolution of pity issues of the villages that are pending at the level of the officers and have been hitherto not resolved.
“The government will also solicit views of the panchayats that had taken path breaking initiatives to develop their villages on scientific lines,” he added.
