Ranchi: Chief Minister Raghubar Das today asked the officials of various government departments and DCs to remain alert and instructed them to make sure that smaller complaints do not reach the Jan Samwad Kendra.
Chairing the Siddhi Baat programme at the Suchana Bhawan here, he said that smaller complaints related to handpumps, roads, bridges and culverts, problems in toilet construction and others should be solved by them at their own level and should take necessary steps to solve complaints registered at the Jan Samwad Kendra here.
A total of 22 complaints were brought before the chief minister during the programme in which the officials assured to solve the grievances within the two to 14 days.
A complainant Jaigovind Sao of Manika Latehar informed Mr Das that his elder son was kidnapped two years ago but still had not been found. He said that JJMP ultra Ajit Sao had confessed to kidnapping his son and he suspected that his son had been killed for which the state government should give compensation and job to his younger son.
Moreover, he said that his wife was admitted at RIMS and he did not have money for her treatment for over which Mr Das immediately directed that he be given Rs 1 lakh from the Chief Minister’s fund and also directed that compensation be paid to him separately.
The chief minister also directed to release payment of a bill of Rs 3.30 lakh incurred on operation of the wife of a fourth grade employee posted at Bazar Samiti Ranchi. The complainant said that he had submitted all the necessary documents alongwith hospital bill at the office of the Bazar Samiti but the matter was being deliberately delayed.
The officials pointed that since there was no counter signature on the bill therefore payment had not been made over which the chief minister asked to make the payment as soon as possible.
Earlier at the start of the programme Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister Sunil Barnwal said that with the help of the nodal officials of the Jansamwad in every district a resource person would be appointed.
He said districts such as Chatra, Dumka, Deoghar and Pakur are lagging behind in solving the complaints of the people while among the government departments the performance of women and social welfare department, food and civil supplies department, tourism, urban development and housing was also below par.
