He said proper implementation of various social welfare schemes of the government, including the old-age pension and housing schemes, besides, distribution of five-marla plots to landless people, clean and transparent administration would be given top priority.

Apart from this, he would ensure that development projects were completed at the earliest. “Strict action would be taken against adulteration during the festive season as per the instructions of the government,” Meena added.

He directed administration officials to resolve pending public grievances. No case should be pending in revenue matters, he said. Meena said the heads of departments, including SDMs, should show seriousness towards implementing various schemes of the government at the ground level so that the public could get the benefits of these schemes in time. He also directed the officials to reach their offices on time.

Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori said no discrepancies would be allowed in giving transparent administration to the residents of the district. He said various schemes of the government were being taken at the grassroots level and it was being made credible that no eligible beneficiary was deprived of the benefits of the government schemes.
