Jamshedpur, Feb 1: Recruitment of 10,000 policemen is underway while 34,000 teachers will be appointed by March, said chief minister Raghubar Das who was in the Steel City to participate in several functions and also a picnic organized by BJP party workers at Theme Park in Ghorabandha near Telco.
Das said that there would also be mass scale recruitment of doctors and nurses across the state by March-end leading to improvement in medical services in state-owned hospitals. Talking to the media persons, he said that the government will provide one lakh employment opportunities to the people of the state in the next six months.
The state government has plans to develop the state capital Ranchi into an IT hub like the automobile hub in Kolhan region comprising East and West Singhbhum and Seraikela-Kharswan districts, he said.
Referring to Tata Steel’s proposed International Airport near here, Das said it required around 1000 acres of land whereas the private steel major has acquired 600 acres of land so far.
“I had a discussion with the Chairman of Airport Authority in this connection and assured the company of all assistance to establish an airport, which would also promote investment in the state,” he said. Raghubar Das admitted of the delay in commissioning of the road corridor project and assured that work at the ground level will start within April.
In 2011, Tata Steel had proposed the eastern corridor project and optimistically given a two-year deadline.
Speaking on the NH-33 stretch road widening work continuing at a slow pace, Das said that he would be meeting union road and surface transport minister Nitin Gadkari over the slow pace of road widening work on NH-33 stretch between Ranchi – Jamshedpur and Ghatshila- Baharagora on February 2.
On the NH-33 stretch between Ranchi and Jamshedpur, the chief minister said that a meeting will be held at Ranchi on February 9 in which representatives of union road and surface transport ministry, National Highway Authority of India (NHAI), deputy commissioners will attend.
“ There will be no shortage of fund as we will be getting Rs 10,000 crore by April end from the center to improve road connectivity in the state,” said Raghubar Das who arrived city on air route and would be staying in city this night before leaving for Ranchi tomorrow morning.
The CM said he would ensure that bureaucrats and senior officials tour the rural areas to ensure that the developmental fund is utilised properly. Asked about his cabinet expansion, Das said it will take place soon.
Speaking to the media, Das said that proper maintainance and utilization of international level sports infrastructure built at Ranchi during National Games hosted by Jharkhand (2010-11) has already been discussed and the government is seriously planning to open a sports university for this purpose.
