Taking initiative in the new government against checking corruption, Samajwadi party leader and Minister of State (Independent Charge) of Rural Development Arvind Singh 'Gop' on Saturday announced that all construction work in rural areas would be video graphed.
"I have warned the officials to get out of the old mindset and start afresh with priorities that are in sync with the promises made by the Samajwadi Party (SP) government," Arvind said.
He has asked to all officials to get every development activity videographed and no sub-standard material would be used in any government's construction work. He also said that since now, officers would have to take the matter of construction work in the countrywide area seriously.
Warning to the officers, Arvind said that he himself would go to the sites to investigate and verify the development work and the quality of materials being used in the construction work.
In order to make a transparency in the development work, the officers would have to make regular visits to the site and he too would investigate randomly to check the quality and progress of the work, Gop said.
"There are a lot of projects like the MNREGA, Indira Awaas Yojna, Regular Employment Schemes etc that were tailor made for the poor and to provide them better living, but unfortunately graft has made a mess of the whole system."
