‘State has achieved 40.8 p.c. progress in total sanitation campaign’

Staff Correspondent

DAVANGERE: Vijay Mittal, Director of the Department of Rural Development, Government of India, and Area Officer to supervise the implementation of the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) and the Total Sanitation Campaign, said that Karnataka was lagging behind other States in implementing the schemes.

Addressing presspersons here on Wednesday after inspecting works being taken up under the schemes, Mr. Mittal said that the State had achieved 40.8 per cent progress in implementing the Total Sanitation Campaign while the progress at the national level was 54 per cent.

The progress of Karnataka in implementing the NREGS was not satisfactory, said Mr. Mittal, who is in-charge of Karnataka, Kerala and Maharashtra.

He noted that Sikkim had made tremendous progress in implementing the two ambitious schemes of the Union Government.

It had achieved 100 per cent implementation of the schemes, he added.

Mr. Mittal said that 629 Nirmal Gram Puraskars would be given to gram panchayats this year for implementing works under the Total Sanitation Campaign. Of them four awards would be given to gram panchayats in Davangere district, he added.
