The monthly review meeting of the Karnataka Development Programme (KDP) held at the ZP Hall in city on Thursday, witnessed several officers not furnishing full details on the projects and failing to showcase their achievements.
Chief Executive Officer P Shivashankar, who presided over his first monthly KDP meeting, warned the officers to come up with complete information in KDP format. “The details on the goal, plan of action, achievement and pending plans. KDP meetings should not be taken lightly by the officers and they should come with clear statistics. Quarterly KDP meeting will be held during this month and it is crucial, probably Chief Minister Siddarmaiah will hold the meeting. If you fail to furnish details, then you will have to face the heat,” he warned.
Joint Director of Agriculture Department, Mahanteshappa said that the department has no dearth of seeds and fertilisers. “Normally cultivation in Mysuru district commences in the month of July and we have started the distribution of seeds. The demand for ‘Jyothi’ paddy seed has increased this year as it has been included under subsidy. The supply of these seeds is low and the demand needs to be met.”
CEO Shivashankar took DHO Shivakumar to task for having failed to submit the statistics. The officer literally stood quiet when asked about the details.
Officers from CHESCOM complained about the payments pending by the Zilla Panchayat for the works already completed. Shivashankar sought a detailed report to go through.
