Chief Minister Dr. Raman Singh today landed at village Sankara development block Paatan district Durg as a part of ‘Lok Suraj’ campaign. The entire landscape was swept by heat-wave with hot winds blowing across the region. Dr. Raman Singh addressed the gathering at the ‘Samadhaan Shivir’ in the last phase of his ‘Lok Suraj’ mission. Chief Minister met several farmers who came to the Primary Co-Operative Society to collect fertilizers and seeds. He offered water to many farmers with his own hands.
Dr. Raman Singh said that quenching the thirst of humans, animals and birds is part of our hoary culture. He called upon the citizens to encourage ‘Piau culture’ amongst the masses to provide water to all living beings. He said that in these days of severe heat wave conditions birds are also in desperate need of clean drinking water. Keeping this in mind all the residents should preserve water for birds also.
Chief Minister sanctioned mini-stadium at Sankara, boundary wall at High School, the water exit canal will be filled with dam waters and water will be supplied to the agriculture land at the tail-end of the village. A shopping complex at a cost of Rs 15 lakh will be built at village Amleshwar soon. He instructed the Department officials to settle the pending salaries within seven days to the district ‘Shiksha Karmis’. He allotted solar pumps and drip irrigation instruments to supply water to the plants at Sankara.
