Jaipur: Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje called for joint efforts to transform Rajasthan and make it shining in all sectors.
"We all together have to make Rajasthan transform and shine in all sectors so that people come here to see our progress for which hard work would be required," she said, addressing a Jansunvai programme in Khamnore Panchayat Samiti of Rajsamand district yesterday.
Stating that people were made to run from pillar to post to get their work done, she asked bureaucrats and government employees to do their duties and redress problems on time, a CMO release, quoting her, said today.
"I have to face people and they say declaring five day week was not right because employees are not found in government offices from Monday to Friday," she said.
Raje also expressed concern over the degrading quality of education in government schools resulting in decreasing number of students, while they were increasing in private schools.
During the tour, she witnessed many schools where total number of students was 15-16, while private schools nearby had 500 students enrolled, the release said.
The Chief Minister inspected various development works in
the hilly area and pastureland under Watershed Development Programme at Piplantri Gram Panchayat of Rajasamand district.
She was impressed to know about a tradition followed by villagers as per which they plant 11 trees on the birth of a girl and on the death of any person in the village, the release said.
Raje suggested that those who have done extraordinary work here should be sent to other gram panchayats as Resource Persons so that they can train other people and carry out good works there also.
She commended the people of the area for having devoted their whole life for developing the forest.
The CM took stock of the solar hand pump, watershed structure and aloevera juice processing centre.
She also directed officials to prepare an action-plan to set up a training centre related to forest plantation.
Raje also inspected the gravel road from Walra Road to Gudha village being constructed under MNREGA.
The Chief Minister visited Upper Primary School in Piplantri and interacted with students and expressed happiness on the condition of class rooms, toilets and other facilities in the school.
She asked the Divisional Commissioner to provide computers to the school.
