Zila Parishad officials skip ‘last’ meeting

Tribune News Service

Solan, September 12

Taking strict note of officials who were absent from the quarterly meeting of the Zila Parishad (ZP) held here today, its Chairman Dharampal Chauhan sought written time-bound explanation from such officials.

As per directions issued by him, such officials would be required to submit their explanation within a week to his office.

Since it helped to solve key problems of the people, the officials should regularly attend such meetings and seriously endeavour to address the problems.

However, such diktats have been issued in the past too, the officials have failed to adhere to these. He informed the members that the state government would spend Rs 42 crore in the current financial year and the fund would be spent on development work.

Various issues pertaining to low voltage in several rural hamlets, malfunctioning of effluent treatment plants in the industrial areas, lack of bus routes in the rural areas, lack of funds for repair of link roads and lack of staff in educational institutions of Nalagarh block figured in the meeting. Other issues like absence of rain shelters, lack of bus availability for factory workers from Dagshai, Dharampur and Jabli were also raised by the members where assurance was given by the officials to address the problems.

Being the last meeting of the present tenure of the state government, it was found that the officials had little interest in seriously addressing the problems and they either blamed lack of budget availability for the tardy pace of development work or assured to look into the problems which had been raised at several meetings.
