Hemant braces for twin tasks

Ranchi, Jan. 6: Chief minister Hemant Soren will hold a series of high-level meetings on January 11 and 12 to focus on issues that are posing hurdles in the way of smooth execution of welfare schemes, especially those listed in the common minimum programme.

Also, the chief minister will launch a state-wide tour in the first or second week of February to find out if benefits of various government initiatives are reaching the targeted population.

The chief minister’s political adviser Himanshu Shekhar Choudhary confirmed the proposed meetings and state tour.

“The objective is to remove administrative hurdles, if any, for different schemes. Thereafter, the chief minister will visit districts to ensure people are benefited from these schemes,” he added.

While the chief minister’s office or JMM officially projected the proposed meetings and the state tour as a regular programme, sources claimed that there was more to the story than met the eye.

With the Congress mounting pressure on the government for speedy completion of all projects, Hemant is trying his best to project himself as a strong leader.

Hemant, insiders claimed, was now faced with the challenge of keeping his allies in good humour, and at the same time consolidating his own support base.

But, he is not willing to give in to the Congress demand and go all out to woo voters ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.
