Be proactive, northeast resident commissioners told  

New Delhi, July 21 (IANS) DoNER Minister Jitendra Singh on Tuesday urged resident commissioners of the northeastern states to play a proactive role in coordinating, liasoning and expediting various development projects in their states.

Pointing out that there was delay in submission of reports on many schemes by the resident commissioners, Jitendra Singh said such situations were responsible for the rise in budget for implementation of the projects.

Jitendra Singh was addressing a joint meeting of senior officers of the ministry for Development of North Eastern Region and resident commissioners from all the northeastern states.

“Most of the resident commissioners are senior officers with a long administrative experience and, therefore, they can play a valuable supplementary role in bridging several missing links between the states and the Centre,” he said.

He said the offices of resident commissioner of the states can help in getting file work expedited through intervention both at the state as well as the central level.

He also directed the ministry’s administrative staff to develop a mechanism of holding regular monthly interaction with the resident commissioners.
