Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu on Saturday told the government officials that the benefits of all the welfare schemes of state and central governments must reach the genuine beneficiaries of the remote villages.

“It becomes imperative that all the welfare schemes and benefits of both the Union and the state government must reach to the genuine beneficiaries, especially our remote villages – timely and fully,” chief minister Khandu said in a message to the government officials.

“Arunachal has a large government workforce. If they are well motivated, they can do remarkable work as they have demonstrated in combating #COVID19 pandemic in the state,” Khandu tweeted while sharing his message to the officials of the state government.

He expressed gratitude to the officials, health care workers and frontline workers for putting up a united front in the fight against COVID19 and all those involved directly or indirectly in the fight.

“As we enter the new decade, I deem it necessary and imperative that all of us must rededicate ourselves in service to the people of our beautiful state,” Khandu said.

He said Arunachal Pradesh is still lagging behind all spheres and a large proportion of “our mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts are still hugely dependent on government for all of their basic needs”.

“With such huge dependency of our people on the government, the role of government servants is extremely important,” the Arunachal Pradesh CM said.

He said: “At the policy level, the senior bureaucracy must continue to take leadership role in not only to ensure that the genuine benefits are processed at the earliest to facilitate the field functionaries deliver it on time but also continuously innovate on ways and means to make the service delivery mechanism more efficient, cost effective and prompt.”

At the field level, the chief minister said, “all-out efforts shall be made by the officers so that the intended benefits reach the genuine beneficiaries proactively while ensuring that not a single beneficiary is left deprived”.
