The state chief also stressed on achieving the annual target.

“Though some districts have done well, a few districts are lagging behind in implementation. Set it right and achieve the annual target. MLAs should visit their constituencies and submit the status report. ‘Disha’ meetings should be held compulsorily in all the districts every quarter,” he added.

Chief Minister Bommai also instructed that the administration should take action to clear the pending Crop Insurance claims immediately and the MPs’ ‘Adarsha Gram’ Yojana works should be taken up on a priority basis.
