Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Friday asked deputy commissioners of various districts to take steps for speedy implementation of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Rural) and Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojna (PMUY). Reviewing the status of implementation of these two schemes in the state, Sonowal said districts such as Bongaigaon, Cachar, Chirang, Dhubri and Dhemaji have failed to achieve less than 10 percent of their targets of PMUY.

“Assam cannot lag behind in implementing these two dream projects of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Deputy Commissioners must regularly sit with oil company officials to achieve their targets of providing free LPG connection to women belonging to below poverty line families,” he said.

During a video conference with DCs, Sonowal said the district administrations and officials of food and civil supplies departments must hold a weekly meeting with oil company officials.

Reviewing the progress of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Rural), the chief minister observed that geo-tagging of public toilets constructed under the scheme has not been done to the desired level.

He directed the DCs to take steps to achieve 80 per cent of the geo-tagging targets by November 3 to receive the remaining amount of funds under the scheme from the Centre for this financial year.

Sonowal also instructed the DCs to submit utilisation certificates of the money received till now which must be forwarded to the Centre for release of the remaining amount.

The DCs were also asked to take steps for facilitating people willing to donate community toilets at public places.
