admin no comments

first_imgThe Raiders showed a little bit of everything they hope to be Thursday night in a 33-26 road win over the Arizona Cardinals.Keep it mind it was against an opponent which in no way resembled a Los Angeles Rams team the Raiders practiced and played against a week ago. The Raiders were up 26-0 in the second quarter and the outcome was never in doubt, with the Cardinals getting two touchdowns in the last 2:49 to make it cosmetically close.Eight takeaways as the Raiders (2-0) reached the midway …last_img read more

But the appeal will have a positive response this year,” Mr. Ali told The Hindu. Shared beliefsHe said that carrying arms during Muharram procession was anti-Islamic and that many imams had also made similar appeals.Before this development, the West Bengal Commission for Protection of Child Rights directed all the District Magistrates in the State to ensure that children participating in Muharram processions did not carry any arms.

After a Cabinet meeting at the State Secretariat on Thursday, West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee urged people to maintain peace during the occasion.last_img read more

For his people, Puducherry CM V Narayanasamy remains accessible on his cell number

In June this year, he received calls from six different individuals who weren’t trying to contact him with usual requests -,There are not many chief ministers in the country who remain accessible to the common man over their personal cell phone. Puducherry Chief Minister V. Narayanasamy is an exception. In June this year, he received calls from six different individuals who weren’t trying to contact him with usual requests – school or college admission, medical help or recommendations for jobs in the private sector. They were complaining about a young bureaucrat’s corrupt practices.Narayanasamy called the officer to his office and told him: “You are a young officer with a bright career ahead. Why are you tarnishing your reputation? Why don’t you do something so that I call you to my office to praise your work and recognise your initiatives in public?” The chief minister believes building a sense of commitment in the bureaucracy is more important than randomly punishing officers. At the same time, he has directed bureaucrats to handle public complaints with greater sensitivity. “People must have faith in the grievance redressal system,” he says.Narayanasamy’s development mechanism is based on introducing administrative reforms, streamlining the administration, giving responsibility to officers and fixing accountability. “Progress in any sector is possible only with time-bound service delivery. Once we fix this, development becomes an automated process,” says Narayanasamy, as he walks around the courtyard of the state secretariat, meeting people and noting down their problems.One way to bring transparency and speed up service delivery is the extensive use of information technology. His government has not only embraced the digital mode, it also sees IT as an investment opportunity. There is already a plan to set up an IT park in Puducherry. “As of today, all government transaction have been made digital,” says the chief minister.advertisementFor the sake of development, Narayanasamy is ready to rise above party politics. That’s the reason he takes pride in his performance in several welfare schemes launched or promoted by the BJP-ruled central government. “Puducherry is the best performing state in Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana, Make in India, Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana, Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme and National Rural Health Mission. Only in Swachh Bharat are we lagging behind because we don’t have enough sand in our state to build toilets,” he says. The Puducherry government has written to the Centre to allow it to install prefabricated toilets.While Puducherry boasts of the lowest maternal and infant mortality rates among Union territories, the chief minister believes a hands-on approach alone can make a difference in healthcare. So when there was a dengue outbreak, he and his ministerial colleagues travelled around, taking stock of the situation. “That’s why there was not a single dengue death in the state. Forty per cent of the patients in our hospitals were from Tamil Nadu,” says Narayanasamy.Not just healthcare, there is also a high tourist footfall in Puducherry from the neighbouring states. Tourism contributes nearly 25 per cent to the state’s GDP. While the state has set an annual target of 4 million tourists, officials say the four days of Durga Puja alone saw one million arrivals this year. “We were not ready for such a situation. Many people could not find accommodation and slept in vehicles. We don’t want this to happen again and are planning to create infrastructure on a war footing,” adds Narayanasamy.The state government has submitted a Rs 200 crore proposal to the Union government for spiritual and heritage tourism, including restoration of beaches. The Centre has already released Rs 98 crore. Work has started on refurbishing temples, mosques and churches and for the restoration and maintenance of French architecture. The government plans to introduce water sports on the beaches, build a Disneyland-type theme park and start a cruise service from Chennai to Puducherry.Narayanasamy believes the Smart City project will transform Puducherry into a global tourism destination by leveraging its heritage and cultural-spiritual character. The Puducherry government has set up a special purpose vehicle, ‘Puducherry Smart City Development Limited’, to implement the project at a cost ofRs 1,828 crore within three years. The Centre and Puducherry government will extend Rs 500 crore each while the French government will provide a loan of Rs 500 crore. The balance amount will be mobilised through open market borrowings.Another agreement has been signed between the Puducherry government and the French Development Agency to augment drinking water supply. While the agency would provide Rs 455 crore as loan, the balance of Rs 79 crore will be provided by the Puducherry government.To sustain tourism, law and order has been given top priority. ‘Tiger Brigade’, a patrol squad for the city and the state’s semi-urban areas, has been created. Police personnel in plain clothes man the markets and beaches. Thirty-seven notorious troublemakers and history-sheeters have been detained in 2017 as against 31 in 2016 and 43 in 2015. “We have confiscated their properties acquired through force and threat. These will either be returned to genuine owners or will be used for public purposes,” says the chief minister.advertisementWhat worries Narayanasamy, however, is the dearth of employment opportunities. “We have skilled manpower. We cannot fail them. My priority is to generate employment for them,” he says. This explains his focus on industrialisation. The shift of several non-polluting industries to the state has already been an encouraging indication for the state government, which has formulated a new industrial policy last year, giving incentives to multiple sectors.The state is already clocking a growth rate of 11 per cent, and according to Narayanasamy, the new industrial policy is poised to attract a larger number of domestic as well as foreign investors to the power-surplus state, driving the growth trajectory further northwards. The policy has identified 10 priority areas and 16 thrust areas in industry, which could ensure rapid, balanced, sustainable, eco-friendly industrial development in the state. The goal is to create an electronic manufacturing hub using technical resources. “We have 17 engineering colleges, so there is no dearth of manpower too,” says Narayanasamy.But before that dream turns true, the chief minister has one more hurdle to cross-loss-making public sector units. From its annual budget of Rs 8,000 crore, the government spends Rs 520 crore as grant to these units. “This is unproductive use of public money. I have formed a committee to suggest ways to revive these units within a short span of time,” he says. Time indeed is running out, as he gets ready to hop on to his car for a two-hour drive to Karaikal, where he has to inaugurate a CCTV installation at a public place.last_img read more

PDM says no victimization of Civil Service

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, November 17, 2016 – The PDM Leader is confident that her party will win the next General Election, and on the heels of expressing as much at a press conference held at the party headquarters in Provo on Wednesday, Magnetic Media asked Sharlene Robinson if the PDM were to be elected to serve, how would they work with Permanent Secretaries and other government staff who currently work with the Rufus Ewing, PNP Administration.“We are the people’s party, and we don’t’ engage in that level of pettiness, and we want to ensure every civil servant, that you will have a friend as you have had, in the opposition, regardless of who you were, we represented you on issues, you will have a friend and an ally in the People’s Democratic Movement and you must not believe the lies that are out there.  So the transition for us, we expect a very smooth transition, we expect to set firm policies and despite what this government and all of its whining say, civil servants are required to carry out policies of government, they are only able to direct the course when there are no policies.  So that is the law, and we will set firm policies, that we will join together with technocrats and make sure they are practical.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more
