Mysore, Apr 18 (UNI) The pilot project of officials visiting villages in Hunsur taluk of Mysore district to take the Government to the door steps of the people, would be implemented in other parts of the State after assessing the details of the programme, Karnataka Chief Secretary P B Mahishi said today.

He asked the officials, who have been entrusted with the task of covering each and every panchayat in the district in the next 100 days, to submit to the Government a detailed report, including action taken on various problems, so that the programme could be assessed and replicated in other parts of the State.

The top official was addressing the district and taluk level officials who have visited ten villages in the taluk and solved over 70 per cent of the problems on the spot, at Halebedu village.

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy's initiative of visiting and staying overnight in remote village to know first hand the plight of the rural folks had now boiled down to the officials carrying out the initiatives.

Mr Mahishi suggested that all taluk and district level officials, including Deputy Commisioners, should take up the programme of visiting villages to solve the problems on a priority basis. He called upon the officials to strive hard for the welfare of the people by effectively implementing Government programmes without any fear or favour.

Stating that migration of the masses from the rural to urban areas could be arrested if the Government provided minimum facilities like drinking water, schools, healthcare and communications in villages, he said it was easy to provide facilities in villages rather than urban areas and at one tenth of the cost.
