RAJOURI: A day long workshop on Swachh Bharat Mission (Gramin) was organised on Monday as a part of outreach initiative to discuss various issues and challenges in the scheme besides hosting a collective brainstorming on possible solutions with various stakeholders.
District Development Commissioner Dr Shahid Iqbal Choudhary, ADDC A.S Chib, DPO Zahir Kaifi, DSWO Dr Abdul Khabir, CEO Lal Hussain, CMO Suresh Gupta, BDO Manjakote Abid Hussain, CDPOs Khalil Ahmad and Shaarda Kumari apart from President PCR Avinash Jasyal, Vice-President Arif Qureshi and other members of the club attended the workshop.
Speaking on the occasion, the DDC said the work on construction of Individual Household Latrines has been taken up on mission mode in the district with more than 45,000 IHHL units coming up in past one month, thereby resulting in steep increase in coverage of households from meager 27 per cent to 80 per cent in terms of physical achievements.
He said administration is acting on a multi dimensional strategy roping in all government departments to ensure cent percent households are provided with toilet facilities and recently 1,665 Anganwari Centres are provided with IHHL units.
Dr Shahid said the role of media is indispensable to make SBM sustainable, to change the mindset of public and make it a mass movement for its successful implementation. He added the media has always remained at forefront in making public outreach successful through positive behavioral change leading to stake-holdership and greater partnership of public. He called upon the members of print and electronic media to provide platform for feedback from public and support for grievance redressal by highlighting the issues and bottlenecks, apart from an assessment of such schemes on ground which will go a long way in strengthening the delivery mechanism.
