Prepare for Bundelkhand package II: Jawed Usmani
Chief secretary Jawed Usmani on Monday directed state government
officials to prepare a proposal for implementing the second phase of Bundelkhand
package. Once prepared, the proposal, including development works of about Rs
4,737 crore will be sent to the Centre for approval.
Chairing a meeting to assess the implementation of the
Centrally-funded Bundelkhand package, Usmani approved large scale irrigation
projects, including construction of nearly 800 checkdams, in the seven districts
of Bundelkhand to boost the receding water table.
