Staff Correspondent

It is considering a proposal in this regard: Rajasekharan

    HOSPET: The Union Ministry of Planning intends review and monitor the implementation of development projects by States. The Ministry is considering a proposal to amendment rules and procedures that are hindering the speedy implementation of projects, according to M.V. Rajasekharan, Union Minister for Planning.

    Addressing presspersons here on Friday, Mr. Rajasekharan said State governments should implement development schemes with commitment. They should ensure that the projects were completed fast. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had emphasised the need to complete development projects on schedule. His Ministry would not hesitate to take certain "harsh" steps achieve this goal, he added. Mr. Rajasekharn did not agree that MPs from Karnataka were "ineffective" in espousing the cause of the State at the Centre. Citing instances, he said MPs from the State were meeting regularly on matters related to the State. They had urged the Union Ministers to give clearances to pending projects. Admitting that the allocation for railway projects in the State was poor, Mr. Rajasekharan said the MPs would pursue the matter with the Ministry of Railways.

    He said the MPs had drawn the attention of the Prime Minister to the irrigation projects that were being implemented by Andhra Pradesh without clearance. He expressed the hope that the Prime Minister would ensure justice in the matter.
