Barwani, MP, Oct 1 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today said accurate information about rural areas is flowing through his 'Jandarshan' programmes despite it being pre-scheduled.
He was talking to the reporters after 'Jandarshan' programme at Dhawali village in this district.
Speaking about whether the district administration became more alert as the programmes were pre-scheduled, he said government officials tried to correct mistakes but whole public could not be managed.
Mr Chouhan pointed out that he generally carried out sudden inspection of a village during his 'Jandarshan' programme. He said he would carry out sudden inspection of a village every week.
The Chief Minister said during the programme, he made only those announcements that could be completed. Eighty per cent of these announcements had been completed.
Referring to condition of power supply, he said attempts were underway to increase power generation by focussing on infrastructure. Under this, distribution mechanism would be strengthened besides controlling power theft and transmission losses till March 2008.
He claimed that several welfare schemes had been started for girls and women. This had helped in reducing gender ratio to 917 females to 1,000 males.
Mr Chouhan alleged that the Centre was not providing kerosene oil to the state as per quota. He lashed out at the Centre for importing low-quality wheat at higher price.
The Chief Minister began his 'Jandarshan' programme yesterday and visited several villages.
