In order to seek help for the damages brought on by the state’s heavy rainfall, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami will meet with Union Minister RK Singh and other ministers here in the national capital, according to officials on Sunday.

According to the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), “In the meeting with the Union Ministers, the Chief Minister will request central assistance for the state. He will also discuss the damages brought on by heavy rainfall in the state.”
Earlier on Friday, CM Dhami held a review meeting of centrally funded schemes and externally aided projects at the secretariat.
Chief Minister Dhami said, “100 per cent of the funds received from the central government under the centrally funded schemes run in the state should be spent on development works.”

The Chief Minister gave the go-ahead for the establishment of a monitoring cell at the government level for the purpose of overseeing centrally funded programs, as well as for routine monitoring of the work being carried out by the departments following the department’s submission and approval of a proposal to the central government.

The Chief Minister further said, “If any department is facing any problem for the successful implementation of the schemes under centrally sponsored schemes, then the Chief Minister’s office should be informed about the problem immediately. To solve the problem, a solution will be found by holding a meeting with the concerned officials.”
The CM also gave instructions to ensure that the file does not unnecessarily remain pending in the government after the funds have been sanctioned by the Central Government under various development schemes. Departmental secretaries should release the sanctioned amount from their level.
