Pramod Madhwaraj launches Vision 2025 in Udupi

Udupi: The Nava Karnataka 2025 or Vision 2025 was launched on Wednesday, October 4 in Udupi district for charting out a development roadmap for the next seven years.

The programme began with an invocation by Sachin Salian, Priyanka Mary Francis Deputy commissioner Udupi district welcomed the gathering.

Tushar Girinath secretary for Chief Minister delivering the introductory remarks said that Vision 2025 of the state government is in sync with NITI Aayog’s 7-year growth plan for India. “We have reviewed the functioning of each department and are trying to measure their performance standards vis-a-vis national/international standards,” he said adding, the purpose of keeping the growth plan for seven years is to ensure they are actionable and achievable.

Asserting that the government wants to do away with contradictory approaches to development, he said that the objective of Vision 2025 is to achieve common standards keeping in mind the diverse stages of development that each geographical block in the state has seen.

Vision 2025 is also aimed at enabling each district to carry out a survey analysis and work around their strength and come on par with the state, national if not international development indices. The government wants each district to work on its area of strength.

The consolidated Vision 2025 feedback from each district will be collated at the secretariat before December 31 so that implementation can start in right earnestness from January 1, 2018, he said. The inputs will also be used to formulate the state budget and financial document that reflects these aspirations,” he said adding, it will also serve as a document for the bureaucracy and usher in a sense of permanency in thinking and executing holistic development of the state.

The Vision 2025 exercise will cover 13 sectors including agriculture and allied sectors, infrastructure, industrial development, education, employment, health and nutrition, rural development, social justice, urban development, IT&BT and governance.

Pramod Madhwaraj district minister in-charge inaugurated the programme by lighting the lamp and said that the state government led by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah was on target on several developmental goals, whether it was eliminating hunger, creating employment or decreasing malnutrition among children.

The Udupi district is considered the most developed region of Karnataka. The two districts have long been popularly known as “land of the intelligent people.” The district does not lack in resources. During my election manifesto, I had released my Vision 2020, in that I have promised many things for our Udupi constituency. As per the promise I have fulfilled nearly 60 % of promises. A Detailed Project Report (DPR) was being prepared to get water from the Varahi to the Udupi to meet the drinking water needs of Udupi city during summer. Since the city lacked a proper underground drainage system, it had been decided to construct a modern drainage system at a cost of Rs 370 crore. Three modern city bus stands would be constructed in the place of old ones in three important areas: Udupi, Manipal and Malpe at a total cost of Rs 50 crore. The road widening work of Ambagilu – Perampalli – Manipal is under progress. Under the waste management, Udupi district aims to become the first garbage-free district in the county within a year. All these developments have made Vision 2020, he added.

Udupi CMC president Meenakshi Madhava Bannanje, TP president Nalini Pradeep Rao, Manipal University pro-chancellor Dr H S Ballal, SP Dr Sanjeev Patil and others were present.

  1. Need 3 basic items, Water, Education, Electricity
    In fact education is going south for poor kids.
    Olden days poor kids could study in government schools & get on par career opportunities with middle class kids. I don’t think it is case these days. Real pity.
    Most important basic item water becomes rare commodity during summer.
    All these basic things should have been available by 2000 but we are still dreaming about it for 2025!!!
