Addressing the department’s state level review meeting here on Thursday, Rebia urged the ICDS DD and the CDPOs to implement the centrally-sponsored schemes under the department “sincerely and methodically, in the interest of the state.”
He gave assurance that he would pool in resources to implement the schemes under the department.
WCD Commissioner Gamli Padu said the department was going the proverbial extra mile to implement the schemes efficiently.

The participants in the meeting expressed their grievances and other pressing problems faced by them while implementing the schemes. Highlighting some of the bottlenecks, they urged the minister and the commissioner to place funds on time in order to ensure successful execution of the schemes. (DIPR)
