Chief Minister Raman Singh on Monday said that work on 170 new roads in Chhattisgarh is currently underway at a project outlay of Rs 25,000 crore.

    “While reviewing the status of road construction projects, I have told the Public Works Department that there should not be any dearth of quality raw material required for construction of roads”, he said.

    He was addressing a press conference here after chairing a Collectors’ conference in the Mantralaya.

    Singh said that timelines had been set for completion of all the 170 roads.

    The Chief Minister said that he had personally reviewed the construction status of 100 roads at the meeting while the Chief Secretary had been reviewing the road construction status of all works constantly.

    “Our aim is also to provide internet connectivity in 10,000 panchayat-level Lok Seva Kendras as soon as possible. These Lok Seva Kendras will also have a ‘Mini Bank”, Singh said.

    The Government is emphasizing on better governance practices and cashless transactions, he said.

    On skill development, the Chief Minister said that the Collectors had been asked to identify more trades where people can be trained in their respective districts for getting them suitable employment.  Terrance West Jersey
