Chief Minister VRD announced two ambitious schemes on the occasion of the Independence Day, aimed at making villages ‘dispute-free’ and providing medical services in rural areas. The first scheme, called ‘Mahatma Gandhi tanta mukta gaon’ that is dispute-free village campaign, aims at rewarding villages which manage to resolve disputes and squabbles at the local level itself without need for any administrative or judicial intervention. Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh said the scheme was being launched with the objective of rural development. Like the rural cleanliness campaign initiated by the government earlier, this scheme would also turn out to be a trend-setter for rest of the country, Deshmukh said in his Independence Day address here. The other scheme launched by the Congress-NCP Government is called ‘Doctor tumchya dari’ that is doctor at your doorstep. This has been launched by the Public Health Department to provide timely medical services in rural areas, the CM said. Listing the various ‘pro-people’ initiatives like housing policy and power-generation plans, of the government, Deshmukh said that they have been successful in reducing the number of farmers’ suicides in the state. Irrigation projects, on which over 70 per cent work has been carried out, would be completed in the next three years, the Chief Minister said.
