High-level panel to monitor works in Naxal-hit areas

Vijayawada: The state government on Friday constituted a high-level committee to monitor road works in the Left-wing extremist areas of the state. The project, Road Requirement Plan (RRP), is sponsored by the central government to provide basic infrastructure in forest areas and give access to people to avoid movement of the banned Left extremist forces.

As the central government is firm on providing basic infrastructure in the forest areas and increase peoples’ movement to avoid the movement of the Maoists, the road projects assume importance. The central government held a meeting with the DGPs and home ministers recently, where these road projects and other developmental works in the Left-wing extremist areas was stressed and the states were asked to execute the works on priority.

The committee will assist the government in road formation in the areas where Maoists are present. The panel would also help the government in finalization of tenders, ensure early completion of sanctioned project works by resolving hurdles, securing forest clearances, identifying alternate works and early scrutiny of the Detailed Project Reports (DPRs). The panel would help the panchayat raj, Roads and Buildings, Transport and other departments in executing the works.

The committee would coordinate the implementation of the projects and cluster the roads to avoid scattering of men and machines in the Naxal-dominated areas. It would also help the government in the identification of bridges and alternative roads to be constructed on priority. The state government has directed the newly-constituted committee to review the progress of the works on a monthly basis and take steps for early completion.
